What can I do? Participate.

Participate in the Bedford 5k to Beat Lung Cancer. Each runner or walker has a personal story driving them to tackle the course. Every volunteer at the finish line or on the course has a stake in the outcome. Every milestone marker along the route tells a tale of support and loss and hope. The very best thing you can do – is be in the park on race day. Participate in whatever capacity feels right to you.

Walk or run

Whether you tackle the 500m or the 5k, it’s a rewarding experience on a great route that fun to walk or run.
