Registration now open for ThedaCare 5K Run/Walk in Berlin

Area residents are invited to raise funds and support local cancer patients at the 17th annual ThedaCare Helping Hands for Cancer 5K run/walk on Saturday, May 19.

The 5K run/walk starts at 10 a.m. from the front entrance of ThedaCare Medical Center-Berlin. The 3.1-mile course is electronically timed and finishes back at the hospital. The run/walk is open to adults and children, making the event a great family activity.

All pledges and monies collected from the run/walk benefit the ThedaCare Foundation-Berlin Helping Hands Cancer Fund, which provides funds to local cancer patients. Participants receive a t-shirt.
