BENEFITING: FARRINGTON MEMORIAL INC
EVENT DATE: Jun 01, 2014
2012: The year of the 5K
2013: The year of the 10K
2014: The year of the HALF MARATHON!
Last year, when I finished my 10K, I said to myself, I will never run a race longer than this. 2 months ago, I decided I could. However, while running for yourself is a worthy goal, I wanted to make this run about more than just myself and my health.
This year, I'll be running for Farrington Nature Linc. Farrington brings youth from urban day camps, after school programs, and community centers out for single and multi-day nature experiences. Doing everything from hiking, playing with farm animals, and searching for frogs in the summer to snowshoeing and sledding in the winter, youth visiting Farrington get a taste of the nature experience. While we currently operate vacation week and summer camp trips, we would like to expand to more year round opportunities as well. Your support for this program will help to ensure that more and more youth can come out to our program throughout the year.
