10th Annual JB Blastoff 5K Walk/Run
Sunday, April 7, 2019


This years mission will benefit a Waltham family that needs love and support during a difficult time.  In 2005 my dad, Joseph Basile passed away from a Glioblastoma brain tumor.  This race has raised thousands of dollars for cancer research over the past 9 years in his name.  This years proceeds will go to Steven Larade and family. Steven is a City of Waltham employee and well known throughout the community. Steve was diagnosed with Stage IV Renal Cell Carcinoma (Kidney Cancer). With the battle Steve is about to fight and a wife and two young children at home, finances are the last thing he needs to be thinking about. I’m asking you to support the JB Blastoff 5K by registering or donating with all funds going to the Larade Family. #laradestrong
