About This Activity

Flashback to the 80's at Boston College's 16th annual:

Eagles for a Cure 5K Race / Walk!
Dig out those neon leg warmers and figure out how to rock some acid-washed denim, because this race is all about embracing the music (and the questionable fashion) that the decade is famous for. The course circles the scenic Boston College campus in Chestnut Hill, MA (just 6 miles from downtown Boston and accessible via the Green Line). Proceeds benefit the largest, most innovative cancer research institute in Boston and their efforts towards the understanding, diagnosis, treatment, cure, and prevention of cancer and related diseases.

Registration Includes:
• Entry for one to the Eagles for a Cure 5K Race / Walk
• Post-race 80's dance party and raffle prizes with 80's DJ
• Additional surprises to be announced!
