Join us on October 25 for the 2nd annual Miles for Mary 5K at Devereux Beach in Marblehead!
Just three weeks after initial symptoms Mary Park lost her life to brain cancer. The loss and grief affected not only her family but her many friends as well.
Mary’s family learned that while the speed of Mary’s cancer was rare, brain cancer had affected families of many of their close friends and associates. Although that knowledge didn’t ease the family’s grief, it raised the realization of how little awareness and understanding there is of the devastating effects of brain cancer. They created a campaign to increase awareness of the frequency and severity of many brain cancers and raise funds for more effective treatments to speed the day when the diagnosis of brain cancer isn’t so dire.

Both will be held in Marblehead Massachusetts. Register for the 5K here. | Register for the seminar here.
