Sponsored by Boston Scientific and Scorpion Design, the annual fundraiser offers hope to those who may feel there is none. All funds raised from the walk go directly to support the Michael Hoefflin Foundation and its services. Last year’s event raised $100,000—this year, the foundation hopes to raise $120,000.
Walker registration is $25; runner registration is $35. You may start your own team or join an existing one. The event is meant for everyone, regardless of fitness level. You may also donate online toward this event if you are not able to participate.
“We are entering our sixth year of this event, and I can truly say it is one that brings the community together,” said Gillian Stone, executive director of MHF. “Those whose lives have been touched by pediatric cancer really appreciate the support at this event. And the generosity of our community, where people come out to support others, is truly inspiring to witness.”
The walk/run will begin at 9 a.m., with registration at 8 a.m. The fundraiser will take place rain or shine. No dogs allowed.
Throughout the year, the Foundation helps families in many ways, including providing gas and grocery assistance, support group meetings, and family outings — aid crucial to families dealing with the emotional and unexpected financial burden of cancer.
