2016 Lahey Health 5K Cancer Walk & Run
We want to extend a huge thank you to everyone who participated in the 2016 Lahey Health 5K Cancer Walk & Run! More than 1,300 runners, walkers, patients and volunteers joined together on a beautiful summer day for laughter, remembrance, camaraderie and support of the world-class cancer care Lahey Health provides in Northeastern Massachusetts. The dedication and commitment of all of our hard-working volunteers helped make this event so successful.
The complete race results are listed on coolrunning.com, and there is a full photo gallery from the event taken by Pretty Instant.
Even though the event is over, we are still fundraising for this critical cause until July 31, 2016. If you have not done so already, please ask your friends and families to make a gift and help us continue to do everything we can for cancer patients at five Lahey Health hospitals: Addison Gilbert, Beverly, Lahey Hospital & Medical Center, Lahey Medical Center, Peabody, and Winchester Hospital.
Over the past 11 years, our 5K has raised nearly $1.8 million. Here are some wonderful initiatives that your fundraising supported:
- A breast cancer lifetime risk assessment tool
- Cancer support groups
- A class in “fighting fatigue” for patients undergoing chemotherapy
- Integrative medicine options for patients (massage, acupuncture, yoga, etc.)
Thank you to those who were a part of this wonderful event.
We hope to see you next year!
