The Crush Cancer 5k is a charity road race fundraiser for Team Crush Cancer,  a Pan-Mass Challenge team raising funds for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Every penny donated through the PMC goes directly to the DFCI.  The DFCI is, for all too many reasons, near and dear to the Northeast family and members of Team Crush Cancer.

Since 2013, the Crush Cancer 5K has been all about growth.  This race, which started with 90 runners and raised $1300 for the DFCI, has grown to over 500 participants in 2016 and has donated $17,500 in its first four years.

Join us for the CC5K and 3K Family Fun Run/Walk in Bridgewater, MA on the new courses  OR run with us in spirit with the Virtual 5K!  The 5K certified course is flat and fast and will be very PR friendly. See below for more details…

If you’d like to make a donation to Team Crush Cancer’s fundraising, please visit our team’s Pan Mass Challenge page.
