Mark your calendars! The Greater Newburyport Supports Boston Strong 2.62 Mile Charity Run will be held on Sunday April 13 to benefit the One Fund and the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing. A special Kids Run starts at 10:00 AM and the Charity Run starts at 10:30 AM.
Last year this event raised $15,000 for the One Fund … let’s do it again! 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 April 13 and we hope to see many of you there!
Greater Newburyport Supports Boston Strong is a 2.62 mile fun run which starts and ends along the waterfront at Cashman Park, in Newburyport, MA. This year’s course is a loop rather than the out and back used last year.
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.
|Last year, the Winner’s Circle Running Club provided custom event bibs to all participants in the Greater Newburyport Boston Strong 2.62 Mile Benefit Fun Run. Since it was a run of solidarity and support rather than a race, everyone got to wear number 1!|
