About This Event
On Saturday, May 20th, 2017, the 2nd Annual Lisa Kaplan Memorial 5K Walk/Run and Kids’ Fun Run will be held to honor the memory of Lisa Kaplan. A beloved veteran teacher in Northborough, MA, Lisa died after a brief battle with cancer. This signature event preserves Lisa's vibrant spirit by bringing the community together to celebrate her love of running and music as well as to raise money for a wonderful cause.
Proceeds from the LK5K will be donated to the 15-40 connection, a Westborough based non-profit focused on educating and empowering people about early cancer detection.
