Crush Cancer 5K

Comments

Did it! Ran my neighborhood 5K loop twice, first loop in 32:07, second loop in 30:21. As the photo shows, I left all my competitors in the dust; no one to be found! 🤣 It was a perfect morning for a "race."
Awesome event this year! I loved every minute of it, and am always in awe of the strength of the New England community.
My son Luke has decided to run a half-marathon in honor of Cynthia Day, the principal and founder of his school. Mrs. Day is currently battling cancer and the proceeds from this fundraiser will go directly to her school. Please support his efforts to celebrate a much-loved teacher. Watch the video below and click on the GoFundMe link near the end. Please pass the post on to others. Thank you!

The Crush Cancer 5K and 3K Family Fun Run/Walk is Team Crush Cancer's annual road race fundraiser for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. The Crush Cancer 5K's roots lead back to a group of college buddies who decided to ride the Pan-Mass Challenge together as Team Crush Cancer for a son, a father, a mother, an uncle and far too many more.

Over the years teammates came and went for various reasons. Rob, one of the original four and now the founder of Over the Summit Coaching, still rides. When Dan, also one of the original four and the founder of Northeast Race Management, could no longer ride, the Crush Cancer 5K was created to continue contributing to the cause.

The Crush Cancer 5K is flat and fast 5k road race with one beautiful stretch of dirt road. It takes place on the historic campus of Taunton State Hospital where runners and walkers alike can enjoy their time as the roadways are closed to vehicle traffic during the event. For 2014, we have added a family friendly two mile fun walk/run. This event is presented by Northeast Race Management. All net proceeds are donated to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute for cancer research and patient care.

Mission: To help raise funds in support of the Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute's efforts to Crush Cancer.

Operating as usual

[04/23/20]   Hi everyone! The shirt/bibs packets for the 2020 Crush Cancer Virtual 5K should've started arriving today. Most everyone will receive them tomorrow, with a few others getting them no later than Friday.

If you are still interested in signing up to run 'with us' on Sunday, it's not too late! Our shirt printer made us some extras! We will be shipping out a few more tomorrow morning from registrations that came in tonight. If your 2020 shirt size is no longer available when you register, we did add in some inventory from year's past to supplement. There is no guarantee you will receive them by the weekend (depending on where you live), but we will do our very best to get them out right away as folks continue to sign up.

As always, thank you all for you support! Be safe and take care.

8th Annual Crush Cancer 5K and 3K Family Fun Walk

To all our Crush Cancer supporters,

The Crush Cancer 5K and 3K Family Fun Walk, more than any other, is the event that means the world to us. Having both lost family members to cancer, we have been so thankful for the opportunity to join forces with all of you and contribute over $35,000 over the past 7 years to research and treatments that will hopefully help put an end to this dreadful disease.

Unfortunately, due to the ever-evolving nature of the COVID-19 situation, the recent restrictions put in place by Governor Baker, recommendations from the CDC, and some uncertainty surrounding our venue, we are in a difficult spot. All of that being said, in the 8 years we have been in business, we have never canceled a race and we absolutely refuse to have this be the first!

Effective immediately, rather than cancel this race completely and diminish the spirit of this event that has come to mean so much to so many, we will be transferring all registrants to our Virtual 5K. As such, everyone will receive a race shirt and bib prior to “race day”. On April 26th, we encourage all participants to get outside, go for a run or walk wearing their shirts/bibs, and snap a photo. Pictures can be posted to our event page - @CrushCancer5K. There is nothing like a show of solidarity and a great cause to make this challenging time a little brighter!

All net proceeds from the Virtual 5K will still be donated to the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. So tell your friends, encourage your family members, and have anyone that was thinking of doing this event sign up to participate virtually. Let’s try to make lemonade out of lemons and have this be the biggest Crush Cancer event to date!

Together (though apart) we can still make a difference and fight to Crush Cancer!

Crush Cancer 5K's cover photo

Team JAKE

Here’s a little glimpse into last years ride. Around the 1:18 mark, you will notice, through the rain drops, blue posters on the right side of the road. Those are the faces of each of the The Jimmy Fund pedal partners. We left the whole stretch in the video, because they are our inspiration! Thanks for supporting them, and us, as we all continue this fight against cancer!

[02/21/19]   Fun fact: 85% of those already registered for the 7th Annual Crush Cancer 5K Road Race and 3K Walk are signed up as part of a team. And this isn't a small sampling!

Teams really make it fun. If you are thinking of signing up, consider creating or joining a team of friends, family or coworkers. If you are already signed up, but aren't on a team, you can log back into your RunSignUp account and add yourself to or create a new team.

Cheers!
