Exercise and Motivation Study at Bentley University

Friday, July 1, 2011

By CB Loeb
Contributor

Do you want to exercise more?

I am doing a research study for graduate school on what motivates people to go to the gym. Can you give me five minutes of your time? I've enclosed a link to a super-brief survey and would very much like your input. Even if you don't think this is the right study for you, I would be most obliged if you would forward this link on to anyone you think might be willing to participate.

The study is comprised of two parts: the survey and a focus group. For those kind folks who would like to join the focus group, you will have the opportunity to sign up as part of the survey. If you are not interested, or do not live in Massachusetts, this is fine. Your completion of the survey would be of great value all on its own.

Gratefully yours,

The Boston Brain Tumor Ride
May is National Brain Tumor Awareness Month, calling attention to the need for greater public awareness about the disease and more funding for research to find a cure. Almost 700,000 people in the United States are living with a primary brain or central nervous system tumor. This year alone, another 69,000 people are expected to receive that same diagnosis. Brain tumors are the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in children under age 20 and third leading cause of death among young adults age 20-39.An estimated 14,000 people in the United States will die from brain cancer this year alone. More so than any other cancer, a brain tumor can have life-altering psychological, cognitive, behavioral and physical side effects. Despite these facts, brain tumor research remains underfunded; in fact, there are only four FDA approved drugs available today to treat brain tumors. The Boston Brain Tumor Ride is an inspiring, family-friendly bike ride that connects teams of brain tumor survivors, patients, family members, caregivers, and friends all committed to supporting and honoring those affected by this deadly disease and raising money to find a cure. For the first time, a Fun Ride will be held for children ages five and under. All participants must wear a helmet, provide their own bicycle or tricycle, be accompanied by an adult, and have a signed waiver. The Kids’ Ride will start in the parking lot after the start of the Boston Brain Tumor Ride. All proceeds benefit the National Brain Tumor Society (www.braintumor.org), the largest nonprofit organization dedicated to the brain tumor community in the U.S. and go toward raising vital awareness of this disease and funding critical brain tumor research for the discovery of new treatments, and ultimately, a cure for those living with brain tumors today and those who will be diagnosed tomorrow. This marks the 20th year that the National Brain Tumor Society has been leading the fight against brain tumors.
