SAN ANTONIO – The annual Head for the Cure 5K Run/Walk event held in San Antonio on Saturday, Sept. 25 at Providence Catholic High School had more than 700 participants, volunteers and supporters.

With the help from the community, Head for the Cure raised more than $55,000 surpassing their 2021 goal.

Since 2013, the nonprofit has raised over $700,000 in funds benefiting brain cancer research and patient programs locally at University Health and Jaxon’s Frog Foundation, and nationally at the Brain Tumor Trials Collaborative

The San Antonio 5K is in honor of KSAT 12′s former news director, Jim Boyle, who lost his battle with brain cancer in 2014. Boyle led the newsroom for 29 years.
