This community-based event brings together friends and families to walk or run in memory of those they have lost to cancer, honor survivors and support those who are currently facing the disease.

“As a native of Greenwich, it gives me great pleasure to be working with a local team of volunteers and supporters to raise awareness and support for CancerCare’s free programs and financial assistance to anyone affected by a diagnosis of cancer,” said CancerCare Connecticut Office Regional Director Sandra Tripodi, LCSW, ACSW.

Registration fees for the event are $40 for adults and $20 for children 12-years-old and under. All participants will receive a commemorative Walk/Run for Hope t-shirt. Awards will be presented to the top male and female participants in both the overall race and age-based categories. The 5K course is USATF-sanctioned and runs through Tod’s Point.
