9th Annual The Memorial 5K


The Memorial 5k – Run to end cancer. Run to cure children.


The Memorial 5K was conceived in the spirit of Jerry Musco, but runners run in the name of everyone that has battled cancer. The race directors started this run to remember every person taken by this disease and also to celebrate all the survivors. Runners support all who continue their fight.

The race directors have had the opportunity to witness firsthand the wonderful work being done at Boston Children’s Hospital every day by the amazing doctors, nurses and staff members who help so many seriously ill children, and the overwhelming generosity of the Tomorrow Fund. We feel compelled and honored to support these wonderful organizations, and will continue to support the American Cancer Society.

The Memorial 5k is an annual road race event that was formed with the specific goal of raising funds to support the American Cancer Society and Boston Children’s Hospital. All proceeds generated by the event are donated to the The American Cancer Society through their Relay For Life® program and to Boston Children’s Hospital.

The race is scheduled for this Sunday, August 7th at 9 a.m.  It starts and finishes at Johnston Memorial Park in Johnston, RI.
