Need new sports gear? Want to help fight cancer? Marathon Sports, located in the White City shopping plaza in Shrewsbury, Mass., will donate 10 percent of sales made from June 27 to 29, 2014, to the UMass Medicine Cancer Walk. 

“We are excited that Marathon Sports has chosen to partner with the UMass Medicine Cancer Walk this year,” said Beth Whitney, sponsorship and recruitment manager for the Walk. “Their commitment—like that of all of our corporate partners— indicates the level of their dedication they have to this community and the people served by our Cancer Center.”

The 16th Annual UMass Medicine Cancer Walk will take place at UMass Medical School, 55 Lake Avenue North, Worcester, on Sunday, Sept. 28, 2014, at 10 a.m. New this year is the inclusion of a 5K run, which will begin at 8 a.m.

Since its inception in 1999, the UMass Medicine Cancer Walk has raised more than $7.5 million to support the innovative research and clinical trials program at the UMass Memorial Cancer Center of Excellence. This funding has enabled the Cancer Center to increase the number and types of clinical trials, offering patients with difficult-to-treat cancers new hope as well as improved care services. The fundraising goal for the 2014 event is $575,000.
