Kick Off Spring with the Meghan McCarthy Road Race

Mar 18, 2015 09:55AM ● Published by Kieran Gilman

The Meghan McCarthy Road Race is a great way shake off old man Winter and kick off the Spring!  Join us for a sanctioned and timed 5k USATF Certified Course. Run or walk a flat Tewksbury course and help support Brain tumor research.  Meghan McCarthy lost her life at the young age of 17 from an inoperable brain tumor.  She was an extraordinary young woman who taught us all about miracles, faith, dignity and courage throughout her 3 year battle.  She was a true inspiration.  Please join us on March 29, 2015 to celebrate Meghan's life and support Pediatric Brain Tumor Cancer Research at the Dana Farber Cancer institute.

Take part in our Fundraising challenge: raise $500 (or more) before the RUN and your name will be entered to win 2 Red Sox tickets.  All of the funds raised go directly to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Research Fund.  This year, WROR will be joining us so bring your friends and family to this exciting event.  The FIRST 100 registrants will receive a FREE T-Shirt so SIGN UP EARLY! We will also have plenty of great raffle items and music and face painting for the kids!

We appreciate your participation and look forward to seeing you on March 29th.  For more information, check out the race Facebook Page at www.facebook.com/MeghanMccarthyAnnualRoadRace
