Time: 10AM

Details: Please join us in the 2nd Annual Andrea Carey Memorial 5k Run or 2 Mile Walk in remembrance of Andrea while raising awareness and money for The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Whether you were related, a close friend to Andrea, an acquaintance, saw her at the post office or running down the street you can imagine how much she is missed. Andrea had a large heart and a big smile, and anyone that knew her could tell you that although her life ended too soon, she lived every moment of her life to the fullest potential. Andrea lived a very healthy and active lifestyle up until her illness, having completed a number of marathons and local road races which is why we’ve chosen to honor her life with this run/walk in her local community.
