Second Annual 5K Fun Run

The Mace Family 2020!

Celebrating Grandparents Day!

Cape Cod Children’s Museum is thrilled to be offering its signature event and fundraiser celebrating some of our favorite people – Grandparents! Grab your grand, your kids, your neighbors and anyone else who would like to have a fun-filled morning at the children’s museum. Participate in our Kids Fun Run, a true 5K Road Race, or walk a distance of your choosing.

NEW! Enjoy our Bike Rodeo! Free to all road race registrants! Join Safe Routes to School and MassBike for a kids bike rodeo! At this event, kids will learn how to fit a helmet properly, understand basic hand signals, and enjoy fun games to practice their bike safety skills. Participants should bring a bicycle and helmet to join the on-bikes skills sessions. A limited number of free bike lights will be available thanks to MassBike’s #LightsBrigade by Bkin program. 

In addition to the exercise portion of the day, enjoy the museum for FREE, eat at one of our food trucks, or try one of our fun activities including the balloon arch photo opportunity. Event is rain or shine! Proceeds from the event support the programs, exhibits and families of Cape Cod Children’s Museum – Play Together!

In Memory of Laura and Dick Mace

The Mace Race is named in memory of Laura and Dick Mace who passed within a month of each other in 2019. Laura and Richard (Dick) Mace were originally from Dorchester (OFD) and moved to Stoughton in the 70’s.  They were inseparable since they were kids and they were married for 62 years.  They raised six children and were blessed with 6 spouses, 13 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.  Family gatherings and Cape Cod vacation adventures are our fondest memories.  Many of us have made our year round home here.  

Since the importance of family was instilled in the six of us, we chose to support the Cape Cod Children’s Museum since family is the very foundation of this wonderful place. Our parents would be so happy and proud to see family and friends together supporting such a worthy cause in their memory.

Thank you for helping us support family fun through giving to the Cape Cod Children’s Museum and join us on September 12th for the second annual family walk/run.
