Join Kennedy Community Health as we partner with the Worcester Red Sox to host our annual 5K Walk and Run at a brand new location: Polar Park!  

Kennedy Community Health is pleased to announce that its 2021 5K Walk & Run will be hosted at the beautiful new Polar Park, home to the WooSox, right here in our hometown of Worcester.  Event attendees will be able to enjoy all that the new ballpark has to offer while helping us raise money and awareness for our mission “to help people live healthier lives.”  The 5K run will be timed by the Central Mass Striders and will take runners through the Canal District.  Walkers will have the opportunity to walk a 1 mile lap (great for families with young kids) or the full 5K route.  Participants will then come back together for an awards/medal ceremony and a great raffle to wrap things up. See schedule below.

While at Polar Park, participants will be able to tour the ballpark, have a chance to get out on the field and check out the beautiful view from the pavilion. Families can enjoy the children’s area and take pictures with Smiley Ball, the WooSox mascot.  Registered event attendees will also receive a limited edition t-shirt, included in the registration fee.
