On October 6th the Charles River Center will be hosting their third annual 5K road race and 1 Mile walk. The Charles River Center is a human service agency in Needham, providing services for children and adults with developmental disabilities and autism from Greater Boston throughout MetroWest communities. You can learn more at http://www.charlesrivercenter.org
This race has awesome sponsors! This race has had over 500 participants the last two years and they hope to do even better in 2013!
Mery Daniel, one of the Boston Marathon bombing survivors will be participating, and we are tremendously blessed to have the power of her advocacy for the folks that we serve. You can read more about Mery here. Mery’s husband Richardson has been a longtime employee of CRC and we stand in awe of their courage and determination. There is a place to make an additional donation directly to her during the registration process or in person on race day.
You can register for the Charles River Center 5k by clicking here. If you don’t run, you can walk in the 1 Mile Walk event.
This is a USATF certified course. The first 300 to register get a free tech-shirt and everyone gets a swag bag filled with stuff you’ll actually use! In addition to doing something that is cheap and supporting a great cause, you will easily be able to out-drink the cost of your entry fee with the ice cold FREE Sam Adams beer that is flowing at the finish line.
