Hats for Hope is a movement to raise awareness for brain cancer in Canada. The truth about brain cancer is that 8 of the 27 Canadians that are diagnosed daily with brain tumours are cancerous. The Hats for Hope campaign aims to spread hope through research, support, and to find a cure.
Back in 2018, Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada had the House of Commons declare October 24th as the very first Brain Cancer Awareness Day in Canada. It also marked the very first Hats for Hope campaign, which saw Canadians put on their hats in support of brain cancer awareness, posting photos on social media with the hashtag, #HatsforHope.
In 2019 and 2020, Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada took it a step further, selling thousands of Hats for Hope toques, raising funds as well as awareness. The campaign was a huge success, reaching millions of people on social media.
Help raise awareness by wearing a hat on Oct 24th and help spread news about brain tumours during International Brain Tumour Awareness Week from October 30th to November 6th.
