girlygirl P.A.R.T.S. started simply as a discussion between two friends over a cup of coffee in March of 2009.  Jill Di-Tommaso was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in February of 2008. She and her wonderful friend, Laura Smith, have been dedicated to raising awareness about this devastating disease.

Together they founded the girlygirl P.A.R.T.S. 5K Run/Walk for Ovarian Cancer to raise funds for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute for the research of a pre-screening tool for ovarian cancer.

Jill passed away on December 27, 2015 after a long and courageous battle with ovarian cancer. We need your help now more than ever!

Over the last 9 years,  we are proud to say that we have donated over $500,000 to the Ovarian Research Fund directed by Dr. Ursula Matulonis at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.  Dr. Ursula Matulonis is the medical director of gynecologic oncology.  

C'mon out boys!  Manly men run and walk with us for all the women in their lives.  

Grab everyone you know and fight for your mothers, sisters, aunts, daughters and nieces!  The time is now!!

5K RUN COURSE

Our 5k is a mostly flat course that makes a right out of Craigville Beach parking lot.  Follow Craigville Beach Road past Covell's Beach and make a left onto Centerville Avenue.  You will then make a left onto Jackson Avenue.  Make a right to get back onto Craigville beach Road.    Get ready to pass the race start and all of your girlygirl fans as they make noise for you to continue on to Long Beach Road.  There will be a turnaround at the end of Long Beach Road and you can join us back at Craigville Beach parking lot for the finish.  

There will be a water stop near Covell's Beach - which is about halfway through the course.  You will enjoy the thrill of passing our parking lot and seeing all of the other girlygirl runners and walkers as you loop back on the course.  This will create incredible energy and support.  Isn't that what this day is all about?!
