Get your family out of the house and run with us before you feast on Thanksgiving day!  The Wellesley Cancer Prevention Project (http://www.wcpponline.org) is pleased to be a beneficiary of this year's inaugural Thanksgiving Turkey5 road race - a first for the town of Wellesley, Massachusetts.   


Starting at 8 a.m. at Linden Square, the race includes the ever popular 5 miler and a 5K option through Wellesley College where you will enjoy a run through the beautiful campus and the Boston Marathon’s famous “Scream Tunnel” section before seeing the “1 mile to go!” sign!


To register or volunteer, click here at Turkey5: http://runagainstcancer.org/turkey5/details/  Please see details below for road closures.


Funds earmarked for the Wellesley Cancer Prevention Project will be shared with the Integrated Services Support provided by the Vernon Cancer Center at Newton Wellesley Hospital. These experts are dedicated to providing care for cancer patients and helping them to live life as normally as possible despite their cancer diagnosis.  Other beneficiaries include The Greater Boston Food Bank and the Ellie Fund.


Come run with us for an important cause before the feast!
