April 3, 2023

Registration is open for Emerson Health’s 24th annual 5k Run~Walk for Cancer Care at www.emersonhospital.org/5k. All proceeds support healing programs for patients who receive cancer care at Emerson.  In addition to the 5k, there will be a one-mile Kids’ Run and medals for the top finishers.

There are two ways to participate: Join the in-person event on Saturday, May 6 at 8:00 am at Nara Park in Acton, which includes free breakfast from Blackbird Cafe, ice cream from Kimball Farm, lawn games from All in Events MA, and community tables.

Or, sign up to do the virtual event to complete the 5k anytime between May 1 – May 6. Visit the website for details, to register, and make a donation. All registrants receive a high-performance race shirt. 

The Run~Walk event is a great opportunity to meet up with friends, neighbors, and loved ones. Encourage everyone you know to come out and exercise while raising money to support people in the community with cancer. For more information, email runwalk@emersonhosp.org, call Emerson’s Development Office at 978-287-3084, and follow us on Facebook and Instagram @EmersonHealth5K.
