2022 Stick It to Brain Tumors Tournament

We are cordially inviting you to participate in our 2022 Stick It to Brain Tumors Benefit Tournament –  March 25-27 ! 

We are back!!  It has been two long years, but we are ecstatic to be hosting the tournament again!!

Our goal in 2022 is the same as past years:

  • Have Fun.
  • Raise Awareness Of Brain Tumors (Cancer)
  • Raise More Money for Brain Tumor Research.

The effects of brain tumors can be devastating because they are located at the control center for thought, emotion, and movement. In many cases, brain tumor survivors live with physical and/or psychological disabilities. We don’t even know the causes of brain tumors!  Unfortunately, brain tumor cancer research is one of the most under-funded areas of cancer research in this country. Of the ten priority areas for research, brain tumors come in at the bottom for funding.

We have raised over $230,000 in our twelve tournaments!  We greatly appreciate the support of all the teams and individuals that participated to make it such a successful event!!

All proceeds are donated to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation & Johns Hopkins Research Hospital.

2020 Stick it to Brain Tumors Tournament – CANCELLED

Dear Teams,

It is with great sadness and much regret that we have to cancel the Brain Tumor tournament. Schenectady County just reported their first case and it happens to be a Union College employee. The college has cancelled all events, effective immediately.

For all the teams that have paid, I will be sending you a refund check in the next week. For those teams that have made reservations for local hotels, let me know if they give you any trouble cancelling your reservations.

I am so sorry to this, but have no choice, and with the NHL, USA Hockey, NBA canceling…. I guess it was inevitable.
If you have any questions, please let me know. I appreciate the support you have shown each year, and hopefully we will not have a pandemic in 2021!!
