Kids 4 Kids Roll-a-thon
Kids at the Nature Academy in Nashua are significant supporters of Norris Cotton Cancer Center! When May rolls around each year, the children take part in a tricycle event to raise funds for cancer research and patient services at the facilities of The Nature of Things. What an inspiring event!
The Friends of Norris Cotton Cancer Center, with the support of Southern New Hampshire University, will host its annual "Seeds of Hope" fashion show in May to raise funds for patient services and cancer research at Norris Cotton Cancer Center.
Individuals or businesses interested in becoming an event sponsor or donating items for the silent auction, may contact Christine Telge at (603)703-6955 for more information.

Fun-filled day raising money for local cancer patients. Join us for our annual 5K, then the Fisher Cats game. Proceeds from both events will benefit Dartmouth-Hitchcock Norris Cotton Cancer Center. All registered runners will get a game day ticket. Additional tickets are available for only $12, with a portion of each ticket going to the Cancer Center.
The Friends 5K run/walk started in 2008 as a way for friends to support a fellow runner as he went through cancer. They wanted to take action against cancer—to DO something about this terrible disease that had struck their friend and touches so many. It seemed especially fitting to create a race that raised money to benefit the Friends of Norris Cotton Cancer Center at Dartmouth-Hitchcock. This year the race will showcase the Manchester Millyard and all that it has to offer.
Visit the friends5k.org site for information and to sign up!
The annual Skip Matthews Run in June commemorates the life of this exceptional friend, parent, husband, and personality. All proceeds from Skip's Run will benefit the Brain Tumor Research Fund at Norris Cotton Cancer Center. Participants choose from a 4-mile race or a 1-mile walk/fun-run (kids welcome!).
