Description

Come join us on a nice and sunny day for a fun 5K (3.1 mile) run/walk! Grab everyone you can think of and enjoy a nice day on the Esplanade while supporting some of the families in your community along with thousands of others that will benefit from your funding and increased awareness. This is our 8th annual 5K and we expect it to be better than ever! So, join us at a perfect event to participate in leading up to Marathon Monday for a fun/flat/speedy 5K, the cause, or a great way to experience Boston and meet new people!

There will be BALLOONS, PRIZES, MUSIC, FOOD, AND MORE FUN! All proceeds go to the PLGA Foundation, d.b.a. A Kid's Brain Tumor Cure. Brain tumors are the leading cause of cancer death in children! The Pediatric Low Grade Astrocytoma Foundation is the largest, and only non-profit organization dedicated to providing hope to children, parents, and families fighting PLGAs.
