|JB Blastoff 5K Run/Walk|
Blastoff 5k Run/Walk has been created to raise monies for brain cancer research
in memory of Joseph Basile who passed away from a Glioblastoma brain tumor in
2005. Glioblastoma is the most common and most aggressive form of primary brain
cancer. The race starts and finishes at
our new sponsor --- John Brewer's Tavern, 39 Main Street in Waltham. Chip timing provided by RaceWire with prizes
to top male/female finishers plus various age categories. We’re once again
proud to be part of the Race Around Waltham (RAW) Series which encourages
participation in all Waltham races and tracks runners, walkers and volunteers
for prizes. Party and refreshments post-race at John Brewer's. Runners and
walkers welcome -- tell your friends and bring the kids!
