Join the Concussion Legacy Foundation in the Race to End CTE!

Race to End CTE 2024 Concussion Legacy Foundation

We are excited to announce the Race to End CTE is back and bigger than ever! From now until Monday, May 20, we need your help to raise funds for critical research and prevention programs moving us closer to a world without CTE.

By joining the Race, you’re raising awareness of CTE, honoring the nearly 1,000 athletes and veterans who have died with CTE, and giving hope to the millions at risk for developing CTE. Your Race to End CTE can be a virtual or in-person event like a run or walk, or you can simply jump in the competition through fundraising.

The Race to End CTE is not just about fundraising, though — it's about engaging and serving your community. More than 30 college alumni teams have already signed up to honor those they have lost, and they are committed to “No Teammate Left Behind” by promoting the free CLF HelpLine. We encourage all participants to share the HelpLine in their communications to ensure CLF is connected to patients and families battling suspected CTE when they need us most.

Check out our 2024 Fundraising Toolkit for tips on recruitment and promotion, including example emails and social media posts.

If you have any questions or need help launching your own page, contact Morgan Hicks at

On Saturday, April 20, the Sullivan to Beasley Race to End CTE 5k Fun Walk is honoring the lives of these men, their teammates, and all others who have suffered or are currently suffering from head trauma.

Sign up to join the 5k Fun Walk here.

Rock Circus

Rock Circus Concussion Legacy Foundation

On Saturday, April 27, enjoy circus acts and a killer 80's hair metal concert at Rock Circus! In September 2019, Ashley Bodhaine's life was turned upside down when she was in a car accident. The years following turned her life into a circus as she battled PCS. After finding CLF during her determined journey to heal, she leaned on the resources and hope that came with them. Now, Bodhaine wants to raise awareness of PCS and money for CLF!

Rock Circus will take place at The Forge in Joliet, IL.

16th Annual Concussion Legacy Gala

The 16th Annual Concussion Legacy Gala took place on Thursday, November 2, 2023 at the Fairmont Copley Plaza in Boston, MA. We had 400+ people in the room as we honored Boston Bruins legend Patrice Bergeron and raised funds to continue fighting for a world without CTE and concussion safety without compromise.

We are so grateful to everyone who joined us in person and supported from afar.

This article written by the Boston Globe’s Tara Sullivan, who attended the gala, captured the message of the evening perfectly. To see photos from the event, check out our gallery here.
