This springtime weather gets us excited for outdoor events, especially those that bring together family and friends! Some of our favorite events feature running shoes, wonderful people and causes that help the community. We believe that “fun runs” combine all of these features and make lasting memories.
WHAT IS A FUN RUN?
What is a “fun run,” you ask? In most cases, it’s an event that involves a shorter course (not distances like a half-marathon) with a group of enthusiastic participants coming together for a cause. In addition to the amazing feeling you get while raising funds for a special cause, running has proven physical and mental health benefits. You can feel good about the difference you are making while enjoying exercise with friends and family.
Sponsoring these types of events makes us feel closer to the community that benefits from the funds that are raised. We recently supported 826 Boston’s Half Half Half Half Half Marathon fun run by providing granola snack packs to everyone who participated. This annual event helped 826 Boston raise over $17,000 for their children’s writing programs! We were honored to be part of an event that positively impacts children’s lives.
LOAVES & FISHES FUN RUN
Looking for a fun run to join? Lace up your running (or walking) shoes and help support Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry at their Spring Into Action 5k event. This important fixture to the community helps serve those in North-Central Massachusetts who are food insecure. We hope for a beautiful spring day, full of happy runners and beyond delicious granola!
