I will be running the Mother's Day Half Marathon again this year to honor the strength, grace, and determination of my mom Terry who we lost to cancer 4 years ago. I also run to honor Joan and Jayne two of my closest friends who continue to surive and fight and live everyday to its fullest. Running, training, healing, persisting, and growing represent a pattern in my life and theirs. Please consider donating to the Cancer Connection, an organization who has helped so many through their callenging times to honor those who we have lost and those who continue to fight.
WMass Mother's Day Half Marathon
The WMass Mother's Day Half Marathon has been supporting Cancer Connection for 11 years! Now that 2020 & 2021 have been brutal to charities, they need our help more than ever. This race is one of extremely FEW that operate on donation. Race expenses are kept to a minimum, yet we try to make the runners' experience top-notch. This race has a vibe of gratitude, appreciation and so much love. Not only are runners happy to run, volunteers are happy to help and cancer-warriors are happy to benefit from the free services provided by Cancer Connection.
It is truly The BEST half in Western Mass! This race makes an impact!
Cancer Connection provides a haven where people with cancer and their loved ones can learn how to navigate the difficulties of cancer through FREE one-to-one guidance, education, peer support, integrative therapies and exercise and creative programs.
