About the Race

Why this Race?

To raise money for St. Peter’s ALS Regional Center, which provides much needed services to individuals (and their families) fighting the terribly debilitating and ultimately terminal illness sometimes called “Lou Gehrig’s Disease”.

We anticipate some 600 runners and walkers for the April 27, 2014 (and 6th annual) edition of the Cherry Blossom 5K Race for ALS. We started with just 125 ┬árunners in 2009. In 2013 over 330 runners and some 100 walkers together took part in this great cause to support St. Peter’s ALS Regional Center.
