The Run of Hope is a fun-filled event for the entire family, young and old. The 5K Run & 2K walk also includes a Kids Fun Run, a delicious pancake breakfast, and the chance to see Red Sox slugger Big Papi in person. Sponsored by Four Seasons Hotel Boston, the event supports pediatric cancer care and research at the Massachusetts General Hospital for Children (MGH). Join us on Saturday, June 9th at the Charles River Esplanade (near the Hatch Shell) for a memorable morning!

Thus far, Four Seasons Boston has raised over $1 million for MGH, and together with the David Ortiz Children’s Fund, they look forward to seeing that number continue to climb. There’s no better way to enjoy a Saturday morning – or to give back – than by participating in this one-of-a-kind event. Each stride is a step toward research, support, recovery and hope for hundreds of kids and families in their fight against this devastating disease. Visit for details or to register now.

The Cause
Every day hundreds of children visit MGH to treat various blood disorders and cancer. The care they receive is dependent on people like you: you have the power to help provide life-saving services and research for future prevention. Whether you are a seasoned runner with little-to-no fundraising experience or a novice runner who has raised thousands of dollars for a charitable organization, it all begins with you. Every penny raised will go straight toward the cause.

The Mix 104.1 Ice Cream Truck will be on-hand, in addition to a pancake breakfast plus children’s activities and characters. All guests can enjoy an incredible raffle, and top fundraising winners will receive trips to Four Seasons properties.

The Schedule
Participants are encouraged to register online prior to June 9th. Race Day registration kicks off at 8:30 a.m. The races begin with the Kids’ Fun Run just after 10 a.m., followed by the 5K Run at 10:30 a.m. and the 2K Walk goes soon thereafter. Following the races and walk, participants will enjoy the Pancake Breakfast and Awards ceremony.
