18th Annual Take the Lake 5k

Take the Lake 5K

Sunday June 25, 2017


About Take the Lake

Take the Lake 5K is a charity run and walk around Wakefield's beautiful Lake Quannapowitt. Since the founding of the race sixteen years ago, over 6,000 local walkers and runners have participated in the event and we have raised $245,000 for three cancer related charities: The American Cancer Society, The New England Community for Cancer Survivorship and ESSCO-MGH.
This year, proceeds will be donated to ESSCO-MGH, an organization that funds vital breast cancer research at the Mass General Hospital.
We hope you can join us for our 18th annual event on June 25th, 2017 as we celebrate survivorship and support organizations that fight cancer!

We are inviting groups to participate as teams. Form a team with your co-workers or friends, or in honor of a loved one affected by cancer. The number of team members is unlimited and your team shirts, hats etc. are only limited to your imagination. Build a little team spirit with your friends or co-workers at Take the Lake 5K. And now, with the online team registration and fundraising system we are using - you can make it easy for team members and friends to sponsor and support you - or to register as a member of your team.
