The 2022 Wakefield 5k benefitting Cure SMA is a fundraising event that brings communities together to support Cure SMA’s mission of driving breakthroughs in treatment and care for those impacted by spinal muscular atrophy (SMA). The 8th Annual Wakefield 5K is held around beautiful Lake Quannapowitt in Wakefield, MA. This chip-timed 5K race is fast and flat, with a scenic course completely around the lake. Join us and enjoy entertainment by New England’s Best DJs, finisher prizes, and a post-race raffle.

Because of our your support, we have invested in groundbreaking research leading to three FDA-approved treatments for SMA, supported services for thousands of people with SMA and their families, improved care through our Clinical Care Network, and expanded newborn screening to 97% of the U.S. 

By participating in this event and raising life-changing funds, you will help support research and programs that continue to change the course of SMA. We encourage you to join us as an individual or start a Walk-n-Roll team. Together we are stronger, and together we will find a cure.
