Emerson Health 5K Run~Walk for Cancer Cure

May 6, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am


Each spring, the Emerson Health 5k Run~Walk for Cancer Care brings our community together. In 2022, we braved the elements of a cold and windy May day and raised more than $180,000 for local cancer care!

Click here to register for our 2023 Run~Walk event. This year’s event will be a hybrid Run~Walk. You can choose to participate in person on Saturday, May 6, at 8 a.m. at NARA Park in Acton, or Run~Walk your 5k anytime, anywhere you choose between May 1 and May 6. This is your chance to schedule your fitness around your time and the weather!


We are providing compassionate cancer care for the NOW:

  • Healing Programs
  • Integrative Practices
  • One-on-One and Group Support
  • Financial Assistance



Rally your friends, family and neighbors and help us raise $175,000 to support patients receiving cancer care at Emerson Health.

Your generous help allows us to offer programs and financial support for adults living with a cancer diagnosis, their families and caregivers.

8:00 AM: Registration Opens
