Welcome to The Kevin Mullin Memorial Fund website.
Our family is dedicated to finding a cure for brain tumors. Kevin Mullin was 17 years old when he lost his battle with a malignant brain tumor on August 9, 2001. His wish was that a cure be found so no other child or adult would have to experience the journey of a brain tumor.
Thus far we have been able to raise $275,000.00 for research. We know this is only a drop in the bucket so we want to continue this fight and hope to make a difference. We have done a 5K Run/Walk for the last 13 years. We also had a wine tasting event this year. Because it is getting harder to do the Run we are going to be trying some new ways to raise funds.
In 2016 we are going to try another new way to raise funds.
The city of Columbus has come up with the Charityday5k. This is going to be a joint venture between several smaller organizations. The idea is to pool resources so that more money will be available for the organization rather than spent on police, medals, t-shirts, etc. Each organization will pay a $250.00 registration fee and that is all the expenses that will occur. The registration fee is $30.00 to participate in the run/walk.. Our fund will receive 50% of each registration fee up untill we register 500 and then we will receive 60%. The race will take place in downtown Columbus on Sunday June 26, 2016. You can register at www.charityday5k.com. When you get to the website click on Charity partners and you will see Kevin's Fund. Click on it and it will take you to his page where you will be able to register. More information will be posted as it is available. Please consider joining us.
We hope to raise $20,000 for brain tumor research but we need your help to accomplish this. If you would prefer just to send a donation we will be most happy to accept that. You can again use PayPal or send a check to:

The virtual run has ended. Thank you to all participated. We were able to donate $9,000 for brain tumor research. This raises our total to $275,000 over the last 14 years.
We are also planning another a wine tasting event in the fall. More details to follow.
