Event Details

Since 1992, we’ve been gathering on the streets of Stamford to fundraise for the Bennett Cancer Center. Join us for Connecticut's largest participatory charity event, the Walk & Run, on Sunday, June 4, 2017 in Columbus Park.

The 5K Run, 10K Run and Walk routes take you through downtown Stamford, beginning and ending at Columbus Park. It's a truly special day where we come together as a community to show our support for our family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers who have been touched by cancer.
