Race 4 Research 5K


The ALS Therapy Development Institute is the top non-profit biotechnology organization dedicated to developing effective treatments for ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) and are hosting the upcoming Race 4 Research 5K.

The Race 4 Research 5K will take place on Sunday, August 18th in Cambridge, Massachusetts and the 5K run and walk will bring together more than 400 participants from across the Greater Boston community each year. The event raises money and awareness for the fight against ALS. The ALS TDI Race 4 Research brings attention to the critical role scientific research plays in bringing us closer to effective treatments and a cure for ALS.

Race 4 Research participants will walk, run or roll through Technology Square, Cambridge’s biotechnology hotspot. As an added fun nuance to the race, dress in your nerdiest costume and join the chip-timed 5K road race or the  4-mile ALS awareness walk and wheelchair ride along the picturesque Charles River. Let’s celebrate the revenge of the nerds! Let your geek flag fly! Nerdy costumes are encouraged and awards will be given to the best ones!

Once you are done the run or the walk, join your fellow participants at an after party right at the finish line complete with snacks and beer!

I ran this race in 2016 and had a great time at the run. You can read a race recap here and I hope you will register and support this great cause!
