Registration is now open for this year’s Emerson Hospital 5k Run~Walk for Cancer.

The popular event brings together runners, walkers, and families from all of the surrounding towns to support cancer patients who are treated at the Mass General Cancer Center at Emerson Hospital — Bethke.

Run~Walk will take place rain or shine at The Thoreau Center, 275 Forest Ridge Road in Concord on Saturday morning, June 9.

The presenting sponsor of Run~Walk is Cambridge Savings Bank.
The 5k Run begins at 9:00 a.m. and follows a beautiful neighborhood course that takes participants through a wooded area, gently rolling side streets, back through the wooded area and down a path to the finish line.

The 5k Walk begins at 9:00 a.m. and follows the same course.

A one-mile Kids’ Fun Run starts at 8:15 a.m. and is ideal for children ages 5-12.

The Fun Doesn’t End at the Finish Line!

Family activities following the race include a lunch, swimming in the beautiful outdoor pool, tie-dye t-shirts, music, field games and an awards ceremony for the top fundraisers and winners in each category.

These activities are free with registration.

Visit www.EmersonHospital.org/5k for event details, to register to run or walk, and make a donation to support cancer care at Emerson.

Funds raised provide compassionate care, including acupuncture and massage therapy, educational resources, coping support, transportation and more for loved ones and neighbors who are receiving cancer care at Emerson.

Emerson is proud to display its new Run~Walk Tribute Wall, a visual display of the community’s support for friends, neighbors and loved ones who have cancer.
