The Lahey 5K 2018

Raising money by baking, running with good friends and celebrating the hospital that keeps me cancer free? Sign me up!!

For the FIFTH year team NED (No Evidence of Disease) was in full affect. And we managed to raise $3,700 for the Lahey Health Cancer Centers. Not too shabby. Over the 5 years of Team NED's existence we have raised >$15,000 for the cancer centers. Slow and steady we keep the money flowing.

Our annual bake sale ended up being a rousing success, not surpassing last year, but still with an impressive haul.

Check out all the baking the RD's did:

The biggest hit (outside of the granola that we can't keep in stock) was oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookies. Will need to remember that going forward!

And then came the actual race. And I knew that my training was sub par (iron deficiency anemia had started to fight back) but had been getting slightly better......and I tied my personal worst! Not terrible but definitely not good (still managed 8:30 min/mile).

It was great to see all the survivors and supporters out at the walk/run. It's great to see many familiar faces and more and more survivor shirts year after year. 

Go Team NED!
