Gilda’s Family Walk & 5K Run has been our longest standing event here at Gilda’s Club – now in its 28th year! We are excited to be together again, with the option for folks to take it Around Town if they choose.

The earlier you sign up the better, we are going to be having challenges and competitions along the way with prizes to help make your event day even more fun than planned!


What's in it for me? 

  • Gilda's Walk & Run signature t-shirt (t-shirts ordered in August – register early to ensure you’ll receive one)
  • Sidewalk chalk and a fun yard sign (per household) 
  • An engaging packet pickup experience
  • The option to join us for our in-person event or take your walk or run Around Town on the path of your choice
  • Snacks and light refreshments 
  • The joy of knowing you're helping to support those touched by cancer

Fundraising Goal:

Each year we encourage participants to fundraise $100 for Gilda’s Club. This helps allow us to provide free support for men, women and children facing the stress and impact of a cancer diagnosis.

Please consider sharing your participant page with family, friends and your community. You would be surprised how much a simple email or social media post encourages folks to donate to a cause you are passionate about.
