Since its modest beginnings in 2002, SSBTR has grown exponentially. It is the largest student run non-profit in Arizona. As an organization, their mission is to provide education and leadership development to the youth, furnish a platform for them to play a principal role in effecting positive changes in their communities, promote awareness of how common brain tumors are as the leading cause of cancer deaths among their peers and act as outreach to support affected individuals and their families. 97.6% of the money they raise goes to fight the cause. They have the lowest overhead for a charity in the State of Arizona.
