  • On Sunday, May 6, thousands of walkers will cross Brockton to battle cancer in the 13th annual Champions Fighting Cancer Walk. The event benefits cancer programs and services at Signature Healthcare as well as the Chrystine M. Sullivan Memorial Foundation and its community partners.   It is one of the largest charity events in the Metro South area, repeatedly drawing thousands of area residents.

    “As the walk continues to grow, and we are thankful for the strong community support and our partnership with the Chrystine M. Sullivan Foundation year after year,” said Jeff Miller, Signature Healthcare VP of Philanthropy.  “This annual event, along with the celebration at the finish line creates a strong bond between our organization and the community we serve.  It is an inspiring event for all involved – those who walk and those who donate time and resources to make the event possible.”

    The 4.5-mile walk begins — rain or shine — at Brockton High School and finishes at Signature Healthcare Brockton Hospital.  A half-way water stop at the Central Branch YMCA continues this year, underscoring Signature Healthcare’s partnership with the Old Colony YMCA on health and wellness programs.  Those unable to walk the full route can participate in a shorter 1.5-mile walk that begins at City Hall. At the walk finish line, Signature Healthcare will be hosting a health fair for the community. 

    The Walk is completely staffed and organized by volunteers, reducing administrative costs and allowing more funds to be funneled back into the fight against cancer on a local level. For the second year, the Fire & Iron Firefighters Motorcycle Club, Station 144 will be hosting the Champions Ride for Pediatrics, a motorcycle ride benefiting the Signature Healthcare Brockton Hospital Pediatric Department .
