BPD Emerald Society Road Race

5k-9-11-16-1

Registration is now open for the 9th Annual BPD Emerald Society Road Race. The race will be held on September 11th this year in Roslindale, Massachusetts and benefits Cops for Kids with Cancer, an organization that supports the families with children stricken with cancer.

Donations to Cops for Kids with Cancer have, for example, saved a family from eviction, helped pay down overwhelming bills and paid to repair the only vehicle used to travel back and forth to the hospital. The situations are heartbreaking and all too real. In the last 4 years, including hospital donations, Cops for Kids with Cancer has given to over 280 families in need, totaling more than $1,400,000.00 in and around New England.

The 5K course, certified by USA Track and Field, starts in front of the Emerald Society Hall and will head up Belgrade Ave to Walworth St, around Fallon Field and then up Walter Street towards the picturesque Arnold Arboretum. After passing through the Arboretum the race will continue back towards the finish line in Roslindale Village.

After the race, there will be a social in front of the Emerald Society Hall located at 10 Birch Street. This race is a great time every year and benefits a very worthy organization. I hope to see you all there!
