On November 7, 2021, our team will return to the Lexington Battlegreen 5K/10K for our fifth year of participating in this fabulous running event! As in years past, this event offers several great options for runners and non-runners of all ages. It is also a wonderful opportunity to meet and welcome our exoneree team members, who every year inspire us to continue the important work of fighting wrongful convictions.
This year, we are aiming to raise $5,000 to support the New England Innocence Project’s Running for Innocence fund. The funds raised by this event will help pay for the investigators and experts needed to free innocent men and women still behind bars for crimes they did not commit. They will also help us build a supportive community for the wrongfully convicted by enabling recent exonerees to attend the 2022 Innocence Network conference in Phoenix, Arizona!
When? Sunday, Nov. 7, 2021, 12:15 p.m.
Where? Lexington High School, 251 Waltham Street, Lexington, MA 02421?
What? Choose from 3 great options: 5K walk, 5K run, 10K run.
