Our Mission

Please join us in our "race" to cure the devastating disease ALS. We are passionate about finding a cure, with 100% of the funds raised going to the Cecil B. Day Laboratory at UMass Medical School, where worldwide groundbreaking research is being done daily.

Register Today!

This year's event will be held Saturday, June 21, 2014 at Hopkinton High School. The 5K race begins at 8:30 am, followed by our Kids' 1-Mile Race and the Family Fun Day. Register today for the 11th Annual Sharon Timlin Memorial 5K Race to Cure ALS and help us get one step closer to a cure.

How to Help

Help us hit our goal of $50,000 for our 11th Annual event! We are here to raise awareness of ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease) and to help find a cure for this disease. Please support us by becoming an online fundraiser or by donating to one of our fundraising teams.

2014 Special Dedication

Our mission is to raise money for medical research toward a cure for ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), while hosting a fun-filled event within the community of Hopkinton. From day one, 100% of the proceeds from this event have been donated to The Angel Fund, a non-profit organization benefitting the Cecil B. Day Laboratory of Neurological Research at UMass Medical School.

Since the inception of the Sharon Timlin event in 2003, the town of Hopkinton has embraced our efforts and supported our cause. We could not have held this charitable event year after year without the generous and continued help from the Town of Hopkinton.

“The essence of community, its heart and soul, is the non-monetary exchange of value; things we do and share because we care for others, and for the good of the place.”
― Dee Hock

2013 was a difficult year for the town of Hopkinton. It began with the Boston Marathon bombings and then in fall 2013, Hopkinton lost two of its dear, young community members: Shayne Desroches & Abbie Benford.

We dedicate this day in our community to the memory of Shayne and Abbie.
