North Shore Cancer Walk
Every year thousands of supporters come together to walk more than six miles and raise funds to help the Mass General/North Shore Cancer Center fund important cancer services, from genetic counseling to palliative services. Though the COVID-19 pandemic has made the walk a virtual event for the past two summers, the spirit remains, as veteran walkers pitch in to keep these valuable services funded even in these unprecedented times.
