Team Page:

We are Rocket Surgery.  We are running this race and fundraising because we are friends of Bill Barth.  He happens to have brain cancer and had surgery to remove part of his tumor.  He also happens to be a rocket scientist (or aerospace engineer if you want to be technical about it).  Both brain surgery and rocket science are really hard.  So, we're combining the two to be Rocket Surgery.


In 2015, Bill was diagnosed with a low-grade oligodendroglioma in his right frontal lobe.  He quickly had surgery to remove most of it, and has followed that up with chemo and monitoring.  He deals with seizures as a side-effect of all this, but otherwise is doing well with quarterly monitoring to make sure his tumor is stable.


If you are able to make a donation, please do. The Brain Power 5K fundraising supports the Dr. Marnie Rose Foundation for brain cancer research at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center as well as providing direct support for brain tumor patients and their families.  Additionally, you are welcome to join our team and run with us on September 10th.
