New SNO Web Site

Thanks to Ellen Levin for her help in the design of the new SNO Web site. Without her insight, dedication, and work on the details, the site would not have the well-designed visual and functional appeal that will make it an excellent tool for the Society.

Neuro-Oncology Online Submissions

The Editorial Office has launched the Web site for submitting manuscripts and manuscript reviews online to Neuro-Oncology (www.editorialmanager.com/n-o). Society members and contributors are being notified by e-mail of the date for the general availability of the site.

Ride for Kids

Ride for Kids events were held in several cities across the country this summer to raise money for programs sponsored by the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation of the United States (PBTFUS). Motorcyclists and motorcycle dealers showed their support for young brain tumor survivors by holding events in Cary, N.C., and Torrance, Calif. (May 15), Atlanta, Ga., and Richmond, Va. (June 5), Cranberry Township, Pa. (June 19), South Bend, Ind. (July 10), Northbrook, Ill., and Utica, N.Y., (July 17), White Bear Lake, Minn. (July 24), and Marysville, Ohio (July 30). Since 1984, the national Ride for Kids program and PBTFUS (www.pbtfus.org) have supported childhood brain tumor research and family support programs.
