Cranium Crusaders Hosts 6th Annual Event Benefiting Brain Cancer Research


Cranium Crusaders will host their annual pub night at The Gaslamp Restaurant and Bar on East PCH in Long Beach. The event features drinks and food and a raffle for thousands of dollars in prizes. Proceeds will fuel critical research at UCLA to battle brain cancer.


5:00 – 9:00 P.M., Thursday April 26, 2012


Cranium Crusaders are an official UCLA support group who raise money to help extend the lives of brain cancer patients and fund research to combat the disease. Founders Cindy Atkinson and Chris Zavaleta met through their husbands, both of whom were diagnosed with brain cancer and treated by UCLA Neuro-oncologist Dr. Timothy Cloughesy. After Atkinson’s husband Tom passed away in 2006 from glioblastoma multiforme, she and Zavaleta became determined to generate awareness about brain cancer, share survivors’ concerns and fears, and spread hope for a cure. After Chris’s husband Hank passed away just days before the 2011 pub night fundraiser - which honors him as a Long Beach Fire Captain, Cindy and Chris rededicated themselves to the fight against brain cancer.

In addition, Cranium Crusaders hosts an annual memorial 5K Walk/Run in memory of Tom Atkinson. This year’s event will be held at Lakewood High School in Lakewood, California. Together the two events have raised more than $400,000.00 in support of finding a cure.
