BENEFITING: BATTLEGREEN RUN FOUNDATION INC

EVENT: 22nd Annual Genesis Battlegreen Run

EVENT DATE: Nov 05, 2017

DAYS TO GO: 15

THE STORY:

 

No one should go to prison -- or be in prison -- for a crime they did not commit. To the folks at the New England Innocence Project (NEIP), it is that simple. That is why NEIP works on policy changes and public education to prevent wrongful convictions, and that is why NEIP identifies and helps people all across the New England states who are actually innocent of the crimes for which they were convicted.

Fred Weichel is one of the people who NEIP has helped throughout the years. Fred spent 36 years in prison for a murder he did not commit. NEIP supported him through his ordeal, and on August 7, 2017, he was finally exonerated! When he was in prison, running around the yard was sometimes the closest thing to freedom. Now, running can be used to bring other people closer to freedom.


In 2014, NEIP formed the Running for Innocence team to help raise money and awareness for its work. In the three years since its creation, the team has grown to include more than 50 runners who participate in running events of various distances and work together to raise money and awareness for this important cause. This will be the team's third year participating in the Genesis Battlegreen Run, and we hope to make it our most successful year yet. We have set our sights high, hoping to raise $10,000 by October 2. The money raised in this campaign will ensure that the many men and women whose wrongful convictions NEIP is working to overturn have a fighting chance to achieve justice and freedom. 


Please consider supporting NEIP's goal by making a donation today. And if you too love running, please consider joining our team by contacting us at rfi@newenglandinnocence.org.
