WE DID IT! Ten runners strong, team Running for Innocence completed our first ever group running event, the Newburyport River Run Half Marathon. Together with Will Swenson, who kicked off this year’s fundraising effort in the Boston Marathon, this amazing team of runners committed their bodies, hearts and minds to the goal of raising $10,000 by May 31, 2015 to support expert and investigator help in innocence cases. Congratulations and a huge thanks to our half marathon runners: Bill Comer, Lisa Kavanaugh, Yael London, Tricia Muse, Paula O’Sullivan, Victor Rosario, Karen Swenson, Angela Tieng, Rachael Weisz, and Jeanne Wolf.
There is still much work to be done to support the many innocence cases that the New England Innocence Project is working on right now. One great way to get involved is to join the team by running in our next team event, the Yankee Homecoming Ten Mile/5K on July 28 in Newburyport. Click here to read more.
