Get Ready to Run for the Kids First Program on July 26, 2015

Tonneson + Co, Certified Public Accountants and Consultants in Wakefield will be hosting the 3rd Annual 5k Run/Walk to benefit the Wakefield Interfaith Food Pantry’s Kids First program on Sunday, July 26, 2015.

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.

The 5k race will be held again at Lake Quannapowitt in Wakefield. The race will begin at 8:30am, with registration beginning at 7:00am. Last years event had over 180 registrants ranging in age from four to seventy-five, traveling from local towns, New Hampshire, Florida, Ohio, Kentucky, and even Texas.
