The Mark Linder Walk for the Mind is a one mile walk to support brain tumor research and to raise awareness of brain tumors and their impact on those in Central Illinois. At the walk we will honor those lost to brain tumors, their families, friends and loved ones and celebrate those who have survived. This year marks the 20th year of the Mark Linder Walk for the Mind. Mark Linder created the Walk after being diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2003. Sadly, Mark lost his battle in 2005 at the age of 31 but not before he got to see his vision making a difference. Mark would be so proud to see how the Walk has grown to over 1000 participants and raised 1 million dollars for brain tumor research. All net proceeds are donated to the “Brain Tumor Research Program” at the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria. Come celebrate 20 years of the Mark Linder Walk for the Mind!
