At the May monthly meeting, WCRC members voiced their support for making a club donation to The One Fund Boston, Inc. to help those affected by the tragedy at the 2013 Boston Marathon on April 15. Many WCRC members were on or near Boylston Street at the time (fortunately no WCRC members were physically harmed). All WCRC members take pride in the Boston Marathon as members of the New England running community. In that context, the WCRC Board of Directors voted unanimously to donate $1000 directly from the club’s general fund to The One Fund Boston, Inc. In addition, the club agreed to partner in the organization of the Greater Newburyport Boston Strong 2.62 Mile Benefit Fun Run to raise additional support from the community for The One Fund Boston.
Mark your calendars! The Greater Newburyport Supports Boston Strong 2.62 Mile Benefit Fun Run will be held on Sunday June 2 at 10am to benefit the One Fund! A group of local moms, in partnership with the Winner’s Circle Running Club, have organized this running/walking event to support the One Fund and the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing. Everything is in place (in an amazingly short time thanks to the dedication of the event committee) for a great day supporting a cause which touches the entire running community. Click on the logo above for more event details. If you are a runner/walker, sign up now to support the cause. If you are a local business owner who would like to join in by contributing to the fun, please let us know! We are looking for cash sponsors as well as donations for a raffle. We have some great things planned for June 2 and we hope to see many of you there!
