This is HESSCO's 6th Annual St. Patrick's 5K held at Mick Morgan's Irish Pub on the Sharon/Walpole line. A beautiful race route, fun venue, awesome long sleeve tech T-shirts and a spirited St. Patrick's Day celebration are just some of the reasons this race has become so popular! OUR favorite reason is that all proceeds from this race go directly to support HESSCO programs and services! Join us on March 18th and help us continue our mission of delivering over 130,000 Meals on Wheels each year, providing homemaking and home health aide services, advocating for residents in nursing facilities, counseling Medicare recipients on health insurance options and protecting our seniors from neglect and abuse.

In past years, the event has drawn upwards of 800 runners. This year's event promises to be another fun-filled, festive morning of celebration. Participants and spectators are encouraged to come adorned in their St. Patrick's Day best!

Since 1977, HESSCO has been supporting the needs of elders, people living with a disability and their caregivers in South Norfolk County. For more information on HESSCO's programs and services, please visit www.hessco.org or call 781-784-4944.
