Sponsored by:

Tufts Graduate Student Council and Active Citizens of Tufts (ACT) Boston

Location: Tufts University Campus, Medford, MA – Eaton Hall | See Map

When: Saturday, May 04, 2013, 12:00 pm (iCal)


Join the Tufts Graduate Student Council in our 16th Annual 5K Run/Walk! Every dollar of the proceeds benefits Medford, Somerville, and Dorchester organizations. We are in our 10th year of benefitting Respond, Inc. of Somerville, a center that helps women and their children get out of abusive situations and rebuild their lives. We are also in our 8th year of benefitting Project Hope, a Dorchester organization that helps women to take ownership of their lives through education and works in partnership with families so they can move up and out of poverty.

Registration is now open for anyone interested in taking part in the race. It’s only $20 to register! Participants start the run/walk from outside Eaton Hall and then enjoy a scenic run through the Tufts campus. In addition to the 5K there will also be a raffle. The event is open to all ages. In addition to runners, volunteers are also needed to help out on the day of the race.
