About This Activity

Join us Saturday, September 16, 2017.  Race Starts at 9:00 AM SHARP. BARNSTABLE POLICE HAVE TO CLOSE DOWN SOME ROADS FOR OUR RACE SO PLEASE GET TO PARKING LOT BY 8:15. 

girlygirl P.A.R.T.S. started simply as a discussion between two friends over a cup of coffee in March of 2009.  Jill Di-Tommaso was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in February of 2008. She and her wonderful friend, Laura Smith, have been dedicated to raising awareness about this devastating disease.

Together they founded the girlygirl P.A.R.T.S. 5K Run/Walk for Ovarian Cancer to raise funds for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute for the research of a pre-screening tool for ovarian cancer.

Jill passed away on December 27, 2015 after a long and courageous battle with ovarian cancer. We need your help now more than ever!

Over the last 8 years,  we are proud to say that we have donated over $500,000 to the Ovarian Research Fund directed by Dr. Ursula Matulonis at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.  Dr. Ursula Matulonis is the medical director of gynecologic oncology.

C'mon out boys!  Manly men run and walk with us for all the women in their lives.

Grab everyone you know and fight for your mothers, sisters, aunts, daughters and nieces!  The time is now!!
