For several years, Mrs. Running Griffin and I have participated in the Run for Jess 5K in East Bridgewater on Labor Day weekend. This year, the race is going virtual due to COVID and we hope you will consider joining us for this virtual race raising funds for important causes.

The Jessica C. Thurston Memorial Foundation was founded in memory of Jessica Thurston who passed away from breast cancer at a young age.

With Jess in mind, the JCTMF strives to make a difference in the battle with breast cancer in hopes that one day there will be a cure!  Since the fund was established, in 2014, they have been able to make a yearly gift to Massachusetts General Hospital to directly support breast cancer research.  In addition, they also give out an annual high school scholarship and provide assistance to the local community throughout the year.  The foundation plans to keep their commitments this year and increase charitable giving to the Bridgewater area communities to those who have been directly affected by the COVID-19 outbreak.

The virtual Run for Jess 5K is completely free but race organizers are asking for a donation if you are able to make one. If you donate $20 you will be eligible for a race tee-shirt if you sign up soon!
