Melanoma 5K Run/Walk for Hope
Waltham High School, 99 Jack's Way, Waltham, MA
Join us along with marathon legend Bill Rodgers for our 4th Annual Melanoma 5K Run/Walk for Hope to help raise funds for our educational and support programs. Whether you're a serious runner, casual walker, large team or just a kid looking to have some fun, we have an option for you! Our course is walker and stroller friendly. If you prefer not to partake in the full 5K you can head over to the track for our "Laps of Love", where you can walk as far as you'd like receiving a UV bead for each completed lap. We even have a free Kids Fun Run across the football field! So bring the whole family!
The Dana-Farber/Brigham & Women's Family BLUM Van will be on-site providing free skin cancer screenings. Don't run off after the race because you won't want to miss our Wally's Wicked Good Ice Cream party, food, music with DJ John Zuccos and fun! Prizes for top fundraisers, biggest team, top place medals for all age levels and kids fun run!
