HOW IT WORKS
WAIVED ALL REGISTRATION FEES AGAIN FOR 2022
There are no registration fees to participate in this year’s events. Please consider a donation during the registration process to help support our mission.
OPTIONAL INDIVIDUAL FUNDRAISER PAGES CREATED
With each registration, an individual fundraising website will be created in your name with default content about our cause. You will have the option to use this page/content to help us raise money via donations for this year’s race. Following your registration, you will receive an email with details regarding how you can customize your page, including ideas for soliciting donations and increasing your fundraising goal.
Although you are not required to join a team and fundraise, we highly encourage you to join or form one and have fun with it! We’d love to see some friendly competition between teams to see who can raise the most money and have the most donors. We will also have awards for individual fundraisers!
OPTION FOR CREATING OR JOINING A FUNDRAISING TEAM
During the registration process, you will also have the option to create your own fundraising team or join an existing fundraising team. This will enable you to pull a group together to raise money as a team to support our cause.
This is a great opportunity to join your neighbors, gather your family and friends, re-engage with college buddies, or contacts from your past. How about a team of work colleagues or maybe your kids want to gather teammates, school friends, or extended family? Each team will have a Captain to help communicate and keep the fundraising team on track.
INCLUDED A “DONATION ONLY” OPTION
For those who are not interested in fundraising or participating in the race but want to support this critically important mission to prevent ovarian cancer, we included an option for a direct donation through the online registration process or the donate button.
Contribute to the event by donating to an individual, a team, or making an outright donation. Your donation is especially critical this year to fund ovarian cancer research and prevention. We need your financial support!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
CAN I REGISTER FOR THE VIRTUAL AND IN-PERSON EVENTS?
This year you are eligible to register for the In-Person or Virtual event. The registration system will not let you register for both.
I'VE REGISTERED FOR THE 5K RUN/WALK. NOW WHAT?
Encourage others to support your 5K Run/Walk efforts, and invite your friends and family to walk or run with you!
DO I HAVE TO FUNDRAISE?
We don't require that you fundraise, but we encourage it, especially this year! Money raised is important to help Dr. Elias and his team at Brigham and Women’s Hospital develop novel testing capabilities for early cancer detection, which will make an enormous difference in the fight against Ovarian Cancer.

WHERE AND WHEN DO I PICK UP MY RACE BIB AND T-SHIRT?
For all In-Person attendees, you can pick up your race bib and pre-race packet at Concord-Carlisle High School on Saturday, September 23th. This year, all In-Person participants who register prior to September 4, 2023 will receive a Dri-Fit T-shirt.
We will update the Packet Pickup page as we get closer to the race. This link can also be accessed from the race website.
Due to shipping logistics and costs, virtual attendees will not receive a T-Shirt this year, but will be able to print their race Bib at home.
