5th Annual 5K Run/Walk for Dom and ALS Research
Let's End ALS! Join us on Saturday, September 16! Rain or shine.
Online registration will close at 11:30 PM EDT on Thursday, September 14, but you can register in-person up until the race begins on Saturday morning!
This 5K event is being held in memory of former Newington Mayor and State Representative, Dominic Mazzoccoli. Proceeds from the event will benefit critical ALS research at the ALS Therapy Development Institute. All sponsorships, online registration fees, and donations are tax deductible!
This is a great local event! A new, safer route has been developed that starts and finishes at Mill Pond Park directly across from the Mortensen Community Center. Come set your own PR and honor those who are fighting ALS.
