On Sunday, May 19, runners and walkers of all ages will lace up their sneakers and join hundreds of Breast Cancer Alliance (BCA) supporters in Greenwich, for the organization’s annual 5K Run/Walk for Hope. The event brings together people of all ages – as they remember loved ones who lost their lives to the disease and honor breast cancer survivors.
Recognizing the important role fitness plays in both prevention and recovery, BCA added a 5K run to its annual 1-mile walk in 2016. In 2019, the organization is expanding the event further with its inaugural “Walk or Run Where You Live.”
The event begins and ends at Richards, 359 Greenwich Ave., with check-in/walk-in registration, and breakfast compliments of Z Hospitality, PepsiCo at 7 a.m., followed by 5K run at 8, 1-mile walk at 8:15, and prizes at 9.
The fee is: $40 for adults (includes event T-shirt); $30 for students ages eight to 18; free for children seven and under; and $25 for the “Walk or Run Where You Live.”
