The 10th Annual Franciscan Children’s Road Race presented by New Balance and The Hamilton Company, is a great way to celebrate your family’s health, enjoy the summer, and support the amazing kids and staff at Franciscan  Children’s. This family friendly event will take place on Saturday, July 15th at Millennium Park in West Roxbury and will provide activities for every member of the community. Children can walk, run or wheel the course while competitive runners can participate in the timed 5K or 10K.  Make sure to stick around for some fun post-race activities!  

At Franciscan Children’s, we bring an unparalleled level of expertise to children with complex medical, mental health and educational needs so they can receive specialized care in a compassionate and positive environment. We share an unwavering commitment to excellence, ensuring that every child has the opportunity to reach their fullest potential and live their best life. 

Your support will help us ensure that the thousands of children who come to Franciscan Children's each year will receive everything they need to make their experience successful, so every kid can.
