Seacoast Cancer 5K

Run. Raise. Rally. ROCK!

September 19 & 20, 2020


July 22, 2020: Cancer doesn’t stop…and neither have we! The outpouring of support from our community is stronger than ever! We have raised 30% more for the Seacoast Cancer Center compared to this time last year. Peer to peer fundraising results are off the charts from our teams, participants and donors.

Together, we are accomplishing amazing things in this fight against cancer on the Seacoast. With two months to go, we ask for your patience as we work to reimagine the 2020 Seacoast Cancer 5K. The Seacoast Cancer Center needs our support more than ever before. Be sure to check back frequently for updates but let’s keep the momentum moving forward. Thank you for your generosity and support to the Seacoast Cancer 5K!


June 15, 2020: The Governor’s update last week to Stay At Home 2.0 around Amateur & Youth Sports protocol, specifically offering guidance for organized endurance events, was encouraging. The Wentworth-Douglass Foundation’s Special Events Team is already incorporating these guidelines into the operational plans for the 2020 Seacoast Cancer 5K. You will receive details in the coming weeks but for today, we are grateful to be able to share this great news with you!

May 19, 2020: While there is much uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, we know one thing is certain. Seacoast residents and their families rely on the lifesaving treatment and programs at the Seacoast Cancer Center at Wentworth-Douglass Hospital. That’s why we are moving ahead with the Seacoast Cancer 5K on September 19 & 20. Stay tuned for exciting event updates and information about registration – opening soon!

Step up to cancer with one of the region’s largest fundraising events!

Join us all weekend long as the Seacoast community comes together for a celebration of life in support of Wentworth-Douglass Hospital’s Seacoast Cancer Center. A positive experience from beginning to end, the Seacoast Cancer 5K brings together thousands of neighbors, friends, and family in the fight against cancer. Best of all, every dollar raised supports cancer care right here in our community, allowing patients to live their lives to the fullest during cancer treatment and through survivorship.


Mark your calendars and rally your family and friends for a fun filled weekend, all for a great cause!
