Talbot Memorial 5K Run/Walk by manning a water stop during the race, which takes place Sunday, Oct. 21, at the Danvers YMCA, 34 Pickering St., at 9 a.m. The run/walk honors Lynda Talbot, a Danvers resident for more than 60 years who died in August 2010 after a 23-year battle with breast cancer. Proceeds of the $30 registration fee ($20 for children under 18) go toward the Lynda J. Talbot Memorial Scholarship and to breast cancer research.
