League School of Greater Boston’s 6th Annual 5K joint Road Race and Walk was held on Saturday, April 13th with a record field of 248 participants. All the money that was raised by race participants, $21,000.00 (which was also a record), went towards the school’s on-going efforts to fund and create a new outdoor space at the school that is accessible, exciting and engaging.
The race was once again held at the Old Post Elementary School in Walpole – but this year, in search of slightly more comfortable temperatures for runners and walkers alike, the race started an hour later than other years at 10:00am.
As it has always been, the event was more of a fun-raiser than a fundraiser as staffers, students, current parents, past parents, families, friends and community members joined together for another memorable morning.
Thank you to the companies who graciously committed to assisting us with sponsorships including: Direct Federal Credit Union, the event sponsor, and O’lyn Roofing, the runner bag sponsor.
Other sponsors include: Lockwood/McKinnon Taco Bell, AAFCPA’s, Dedham Savings, W.P. Haney Company, Wegmans, Dempsey Insurance, Norwood Hospital, and the Vanderbilt Club.
This year’s post-race reception was held at Napper Tandy’s at in Walpole. Beginning in the late morning, the celebration carried well into the afternoon as participants and volunteers alike shared race-day tales and hearty laughs against a backdrop of aching muscles and smiling faces.
