Help Beat Cancer at Seventh Annual Sensata Technologies 5K Road Race on June 10 to benefit Dana-Farber Cancer Institute

June 4, 2012

ATTLEBORO – People of all ages can support Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and cancer research as donors and participants in the Sensata 5K Road Race and One-Mile Fun Walk/Run event on Sunday, June 10 at the YMCA Pleasant Street Branch. 

The theme of the event is “Walk, Run, Wheel or Watch to Beat Cancer.”  Even if you do not enter a race, you can participate as a spectator and even make a donation to Dana-Farber. 

The one-mile race is scheduled to begin on Sunday, June 10 at 9 a.m. and the 5K race is set to start at 9:45 a.m.  Sensata will host an awards ceremony immediately following the second race. 

Last year, Sensata raised over $10,000 for Dana-Farber. It is hoped that through the support of local businesses and race participants, this year’s event will reflect an increase in total donations.
