It’s Running Season Again!
We find ourselves in the midst of running season with two successful runs under our belt already!
Bourque Family Foundation 7.7K
June 8th The Bourque Family Foundation 7.7k showcased the spirit of summer with the sun blazing, Ice cream from the creative Sisters of Anarchy, beer tents brought to you by Lord Hobo and music filling The Ferncroft Country Club. The 2nd Annual run/walk brought 2000 fans, family and friends together to support the Bourque Family Foundation in their current efforts of renovating Melmark New England’s gym.
1st Lt. Derek Hines Fund 8th Annual Flag Day 5K
Runners ran for the Red, White and Blue on June 15th for The 8th Annual 1st Lt. Derek Hines Flag Day 5k. 1635 hearts ran in honor of 1st Lt. Hines and other fallen soldiers for The Derek Hines Soldiers Assistance Fund. It was a wonderfully windy day that kept the flag & feet flying through the streets of Newburyport. Governor Baker, Skate For The 22 and members of Derek’s 173 Airborne Division were those honored to share the stage with The Hines Family as the crowd gathered at Cashman Park to salute those soldiers serving and those that have served. The fund gifted Skate For The 22 $22,000 to assist in their efforts in helping veterans with their mental health.
