Earlier this month, Rob Gronkowski went bald for a cause, shaving his head at the 2016 Kid's Cancer Buzz-Off at Gillette Stadium. The annual event benefits One Mission, a kids' cancer support foundation that provides immediate relief services that also bring joy to patients and their families during treatment.
Fans have a chance to again support One Mission while simultaneously checking off what is a dream for many – running on the Gillette Stadium field.
Runners will have a chance to compete in either a 5K or 10K race on July 3, and the finish line for both is the 50 yard line. The Harvard Pilgrim Finish at the 50 – 5K and 10K at Patriot Place is in its seventh year of giving fans an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity while benefiting a great cause.
The 5K takes participants throughout Patriot Place, while the 10K runners will hit the streets of Foxborough. There is also a Kids Fun Run lap inside Gillette Stadium.
All races will end with a run through the Patriots inflatable helmet and onto the field. The day is a family-friendly affair that is topped of with fireworks.
