Charity partner


From its site: "TriadBeHeadStrong was originally established in 2002 by a group of brain tumor survivors, families and friends to provide support to the Kansas City brain tumor community. Mark Newsome, one of the original founders, moved back to his birth place of North Carolina in 2012. Mark wanted to continue serving those individuals and families with a diagnosis of brain tumors by establishing a new non-profit organization in the greater Triad area. TriadBeHeadStrong was established in 2013. We are a volunteer based 501(c)3 non-profit organization."
