Cancer Support Community Atlanta, an affiliate of the Northside Hospital Cancer Institute, will host the Chastain Chase 5K April 14 at the Galloway School, on the north end of Chastain Park in Buckhead. Check-in starts at at 7 a.m. and the race begins at 8 a.m.

The 5K run will wind through Chastain Park and is a Peachtree Road Race qualifier. It's a chipped race that features a DJ and food from The Fresh Market. The event will raise money to help cancer patients in the area receive the support they need both during and after treatment. It is a fundraiser for Cancer Support Community Atlanta, a facility that provides free programs of hope and support so that no one has to face cancer alone.

Affiliated with Northside Hospital Cancer Institute since 2000, Cancer Support Community Atlanta offers gentle exercise and stress management classes, yoga classes, support groups, nutrition classes and education programs.

Registration is $30 (plus a $2.50 signup fee), and participants must preregister online by April 12 at 11:59 p.m.

The park is located at 215 W. Wieuca Road NW in Atlanta. For more information or to preregister, visit
