Women & Infants Integrative Care Program will host the 31st annual Christmas 10K Run & 5K Walk on December 14.

Funds Raised for Program in Women’s Oncology

Each year, runners and walkers help raise money for women with cancer who are treated through the Program in Women’s Oncology at Women & Infants Hospital of Rhode Island.

“This event is beautiful for many reasons. The course in Newport, at Christmastime, is decorated and festive. We have people in holiday costumes and enjoying being outside in the crisp December air. But, the most beautiful part of this event is seeing so many people - young and old, men and women – running and walking to help women with cancer,” said Sandra Scuncio, director of the Integrative Care Program in the Program in Women’s Oncology.

In Memory of Tricia Lovett Stallman

The race has been organized for years in memory of Tricia Lovett Stallman and in honor of all women who have been touched by cancer.

The 31st annual Christmas 10K Run & 5K Walk will start at Rogers High School at 10 am.

“Proceeds from the race help us provide various forms of therapy to patients in the hospital and those coming for out-patient care at the Program in Women’s Oncology. This includes reiki, therapeutic massage, acupuncture, lymphedema therapy, and yoga. Without the help of these runners and walkers, we would not be able to offer services for free to our hospitalized patients.”


Race participants are encouraged to seek sponsors. Online registration is available here or by calling (401) 846-0042.
