On May 18, 2014 more than 5,000 walkers, volunteers, and supporters flocked to the Tsongas Center at UMass Lowell for the 15th annual TeamWalk for CancerCare. This year’s annual walk is expected to raise over $850,000 to provide services and support for local cancer patients and their families – support such as medications, nutritional supplements, wigs and prosthesis, support groups, transportation, and much more.

TW 2013 #1Since the walk began in 2000, more than six million dollars has been raised to provide assistance to well over 18,000 people in the community.

The Merrimack Valley's largest single-day fundraising event brought walkers, volunteers, and supporters to the Tsongas Center on a beautiful Sunday morning. Many participants donned t-shirts for loved ones as they walked the 3-mile or 6-mile route through historic downtown Lowell and its river ways.

For someone facing a cancer diagnosis, financial worries can bring additional stress during a time when anxiety levels are at their highest. Thankfully for thousands of patients throughout the Merrimack Valley, TeamWalk for CancerCare is there to help.
