The 5th annual Tonneson + Co’s 5K run/walk benefiting the Wakefield Interfaith Food Pantry’s Kids First program was a great success again this year! Approximately 160 people ranging in age from 6 to 76 registered for the race and enjoyed the lovely weather as they ran or walked around our beautiful Lake Quannapowitt. While we are tallying the final numbers for money raised, we expect the race to surpass last year’s total of nearly $6500. And, if you’d like to get the race results, please visit: https://my.racewire.com/results/33614.
The Kids First Program provides food to families with school age children during the summer months. Many families receive free or reduced price breakfast and lunch during the school year, but this help is not available during the summer. The Kids First Program provides the added food items to help replace those meals.
Major sponsors of the race are Eastern Bank and Zampell Companies. Additional sponsors include Doble LeBranti Financial Group, Wakefield Cooperative Bank, AccuRounds, Inc., Mirick, O’Connell, DeMallie & Lougee, LLP, The Savings Bank, Sentinel Benefits and Financial Group, and LL Bean Outdoor Discovery Schools. Thank you one and all for supporting this important event!
Let’s look forward to the 5th annual Tonneson + Co 5K in July 2018!
