Starting at 10:00 am, the parade will begin on Beaver Dam Rd. in the heart of Beaverdam and will end at the Ruritan Park on Teman Rd. At the park there will be food, fun and Brown Bag For A Cure with The Wall of Courage representing many of the children effected by brain tumors. There will be items for sale, a raffle, and silent auction items.


Beaverdam/Montpelier's very own Brain Tumor Fighter/Survivor - Drew Goodman will be there to help raise money for a cure!  Come out and help Drew Goodman! Drew is a local 8 year old child living with a very aggressive, adult brain tumor. Drew was diagnosed in 2004 and relapsed in 2007.

How Can You Help?

Brown Bag Your Lunch...Give A Child Hope

Join our TEAM....

You join our TEAM by making a difference. BBFAC is about finding a cure for pediatric brain tumors and ending the suffering.   Your part is simply, to honor your child or a child you know and help raise money for research, by asking your friends, family co-workers, etc to brown bag their lunch and donate what they would have spent on lunch out.   Our hopes are to raise money throughout the entire year, with our first donation on July 26, 2008 to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. The money raised will be combined and hopefully provide one large contribution for research.  Together, as a TEAM we can make a difference and help eradicate this disease!

Our goal is 5000 people x $5.00 donation=$25,000 in donation by July 26, 2008
