The popular Center fundraiser features options for participants of varying abilities, including a half-mile dash for children.

There is still time to register for the 32nd annual Shore Run/Walk, Sunday, June 28. Featuring a 6.7-mile run, a 5K run, a 5K walk and a half-mile kids run along the shore of Lake Washington, the Shore Run/Walk is one of Seattle's most family-friendly and picturesque races.

Proceeds benefit immunotherapy research at the Hutchinson Center.

After the races, enjoy the festivities at the Party in the Park, including live music, food, awards and drawings for prizes donated by local merchants—including round-trip tickets on Continental Airlines.

Register as an individual or form a team with other Center staff members, family and friends. Registration fees are $25 for adults, $15 for kids ages 9-12, and $10 for kids age 8 or younger. Tribute signs along the route may also be purchased, adding a personal note to family, friends or race participants.
