The Prince George's County of Department of Parks and Recreation encourages runners and walkers of all ages and skill levels to come together, enjoy the outdoors and be active in our natural park settings. Events are held in the spring and fall. We hope to see you at our next 5K event!
5K Walk/Run for Breast Cancer Awareness
Next Race Date: Saturday, October 6, 2018 Our fall 5K Walk/ Run is for Breast Cancer Awareness and supports breast cancer survivors. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Bosom Buddies; a program whose mission is to provide educational resources and aqua therapy for breast cancer survivors.
According to the American Cancer Society, it is common for pain and stiffness in the shoulders and arms to make upper body movements more limited and difficult after surgery and radiation therapy. Warm-water aqua therapy is a form of exercise that may help warm the muscles and make exercise more comfortable for breast cancer survivors.
Please see the registration information below to register this race.
