About This Activity

 
The Meghan McCarthy Road Race is a way great to gear up for the Boston Marathon and  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 April 17 2016 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.
 
 
Bring your friends and family to this exciting event. The FIRST 100 registrants will receive a FREE T-Shirt so SIGN UP EARLY!
 
We appreciate your participation and look forward to seeing you on April 17th.
