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. 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!
Greater Newburyport Supports Boston Strong is a 2.62 mile fun run which starts along the waterfront at Cashman Park in Newburyport and runs along the rail trail to Parker Street and back. There will be post-run food, music and entertainment including a large raffle with many wonderful items donated by local merchants, restaurants and artists. This is a fun run, there will be an official start and finish line, but it will not be timed. You can run or walk as hard or as easy as you would like. All of the proceeds from this event will be donated to the Boston One Fund. The One Fund was established to assist the many victims of the Boston Marathon terrorist bombing whose lives have been tragically changed forever.
|The Winner’s Circle Running Club will be providing custom event bibs to all participants in the Greater Newburyport Boston Strong 2.62 Mile Benefit Fun Run. Since this is a run of solidarity and support rather than a race, everyone gets to wear number 1!|
