We want everyone in the GLRR family to turn out for Rachel’s Run on the Saturday after Thanksgiving – Nov 26th, 2016.
The race will be the Academy of Notre Dame in Tyngsboro, MA with the walk starting at 9:15 and the 5K race at 10:00.
Cans of food and other non-perishable food items can be brought to the run to be distributed to a local food pantry.
Rachel was scheduled to run the Boston Marathon in 2014 and had trained hard to be ready to compete in April of 2014. She ran all through high school and had come back to NDA every Thanksgiving to run her old cross country course and bring food items for a local pantry.
The walk/run event on the Saturday after Thanksgiving is a continuation of what Rachel started and honors her passion for life and running as well as adding to the scholarship fund set up at the Academy of Notre Dame for a young women graduating who plans to pursue a career in science. There is a second event (golf tournament at Vesper) held in September that funds marine conservation scholarships at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography where Rachel was a Ph.D candidate.
Hope to see you there.
