Barry Glassman

Community Leadership Award

In the aftermath of a childhood friend’s death from brain cancer more than 20 years ago, Barry Glassman began his crusade to turn tragedy into triumph. Armed with organizational and networking skills, the senior vice president at McLean, Va.-based Cassaday & Company Inc. embarked on a mission to help fund the search for a brain cancer cure. Ten years ago, he became a driving force behind the Cassidy & Pinkard Colliers Race for Hope. This year, it boasted 6,000 participants and raised $1.5 million to fund brain cancer research.
