The Memorial 5k - August 7, 2016
The Memorial 5k - "Running cancer out of our lives" - "Supporting Boston Children's Hospital"
The Memorial 5K was conceived in the spirit of Jerry Musco, but we run in the name of everyone that has battled cancer. We run to remember every person taken by this disease. We run to celebrate all the survivors. We run to support all who continue their fight. We do our part to stop cancer by raising money to support research grants and patient services in R.I. There will be no finish line until there is a cure…
In the past few months our family has been involved with Boston Children’s Hospital where our grandson Nico is being treated for a serious illness. We have had the opportunity to witness firsthand the wonderful work being done there every day by the amazing doctors, nurses and staff members who help so many seriously ill children live. We felt compelled to add Boston Children’s Hospital as a beneficiary of the Memorial 5K beginning in 2015. All proceeds of our event will be distributed between the American Cancer Society, through the Relay for Life® program and Boston Children's Hospital. Money raised will help fund research programs, education, awareness, prevention, early detection, and other programs targeted to help patients.
