Christopher’s 5-k Run & Walk For Diabetes is an annual event in honor of a young boy who has Type 1 Diabetes.  Christopher, who is now 14, was diagnosed with diabetes months after turning 2 years old.  Upon diagnosis, his family, and his family’s running club, were determined to make a difference.  To date this event has raised more than $130,000 going towards finding a cure!!  

Christopher’s father Frank Nelson and mother Ilda Nelson, started the road race in 2003 and partnered with Team Diabetes and the Colonial Road Runners, to help raise money for diabetes and to support the entire mission of the American Diabetes Association:  To prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.

Come join us for the 12-th Annual edition of Christopher’s 5-k Run & Walk For Diabetes, including a kids fun run.

The race takes place on Memorial Day each year at 11:00am (Kids Fun Run @9:45am) - and is held at the West Bridgewater, Massachusetts Senior Center ~ Council on Aging.  

This upcoming year's events will be held on Monday, May 26, 2014.
