On June 14, our Seacoast community lost a very special lady, Kristen Twombly. She was a loyal and spirited member of the Seacoast Spartans Hockey family as well as the Berwick Academy school. All who met her witnessed her great love, her grace and her courage throughout her long battle with cancer.
But we know that she would rather we gather together to remember her smile and her very full life. We would like to celebrate her and honor her request for supporting the Seacoast Cancer Center at Wentworth-Douglass Hospital. Having also had an amazing positive experience with oncology nursing staff and physicians at the Center, we created a fundraising Team in honor of Kristen.
Join us when 3,000 walkers and runners take on the Seacoast Cancer 5K on Sunday, September 22 in Dover, NH. Craig is walking, Elyse is running, and we would LOVE for you to join us for this 5K in body and/or in spirit.
One of the region’s largest fundraising events, it’s a celebration of life and the lifesaving work of Wentworth-Douglass Hospital’s Seacoast Cancer Center. Consider giving a donation on this Team page. Thank you! -Elyse & Craig

More about the race:
The Seacoast Cancer 5K is a positive experience from beginning to end, with hundreds of neighbors, friends and family lining the route to cheer. And at the start/finish line, you’ll find music, food and activities for the kids. Best of all, every dollar raised supports cancer care right here in our community.
Proceeds from the Seacoast Cancer 5K support the Survivorship, Health and Wellness Program at Wentworth-Douglass Hospital which extends the clinical expertise needed to develop and monitor care plans for the growing number of survivors. These services help patients regain and improve their health for the long term and are individualized, based on their specific needs. Care plans may include things like smoking cessation programs, exercise and physical rehabilitation, genetic testing, as well as seminars and workshops for both survivors and their families.
