Support One of Our Own: Register for the 2017 Boston College MBA 5K!

All proceeds from this year’s event will go to the Peter Frates Home Health Initiative

US News and World Report

On Saturday April 22nd, the 2017 Boston College MBA 5K will take place around the BC campus and Chestnut Hill Reservoir in support of the Peter Frates Home Health Initiative. This annual event pairs a little good, old fashioned excercise with a fundraising initiative for a benevolent cause, with this year’s proceeds going to the pilot program of the ALS Association named after BC grad, and baseball alum, Pete Frates, which aims to provide in-home care-giving assistance for individuals living with ALS in Massachusetts. The race will begin at 9am on Saturday morning. Information regarding the 2017 Boston College MBA 5K and how to register can be found on the race’s website, here.

Also, the 2017 MBA 5K will take place on the same day as, and in conjunction with, the 6th Annual ALS Awareness Game at Fenway Park. The Boston College baseball team will host N.C. State at 4pm at the home of the Boston Red Sox on Saturday, April 22nd, with the net proceeds going toward the Pete Frates Fund. Information about the game and tickets can be found by clicking, here.
