WE DID IT! Eleven runners strong, team Running for Innocence completed our second group running event, the Yankee Homecoming Ten Miler and 5K. Braving the heat and challenge of an evening run and achieving many personal milestones, our amazing team of runners committed their bodies, hearts and minds to the goal of raising $5,000 by July 28, 2015 to support expert and investigator help in innocence cases – and far exceeded that goal! Congratulations and a huge thanks to our 5K runners, Andrea, Jillian, Pamela, Sean & Victor, and to our Ten mile runners, Angela, Julie, Lisa, Molly, Shira, Stephanie & Will. Thank you also to all those who supported this campaign by making donations, spreading the word, and cheering our runners across the finish line!
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 Genesis Battlegreen 10K/5K on November 1 in Lexington. Stay tuned for more details about how to sign up for this event!
