Thank You for Making our 8th Year a Huge Success!!!
Saturday, March 16th was an incredible day all around – the sun was shining brightly and the energy in the largest crowd we’ve ever hosted was infectious. Thank you to all the runners, volunteers, sponsors and staff at Mick Morgan’s who helped make the 8th Annual St. Patrick’s 5K for HESSCO another successful one. Over 900 runners, spectators and supporters turned out for the event which brought in over $58,000 for HESSCO programs and services.
The annual 5K coincides with the national March for Meals campaign which mobilizes hundreds of local Meals on Wheels programs across the country to reach out to their communities and build support through public events, partnerships, volunteer recruitment and fundraising. Meals on Wheels means so much to the seniors who receive them. Not only does it combat senior hunger, but the nutritious meal delivery provides an important friendly visit and safety check. In many cases, the volunteer driver is the only person the recipient sees all day. The support and popularity of this event has continued to grow each year. We are so thankful to all the runners, volunteers, sponsors and staff at Mick Morgan’s who helped make the 8th Annual St. Patrick’s 5K for HESSCO another successful one. Key 2019 Sponsors were: Finish Line Sponsor – Central Auto Group; Platinum Sponsors – Anodyne Homemaker Services Corp, Dedham Savings, Douglas A. King Builders, Inc., Friendly Care, Inc., Lamar Advertising, Pawtucket Credit Union, Pond Home, Wegmans, 105.7 WROR and Zalkin Law Firm, PC.
The trophy for the top overall female finisher went to Carmen Luisi from Holliston, and the trophy for the top overall male finisher went to Zach Conant from Westwood. Trophies were also presented to the top three teams. Taking top honors in the Team Category was Thirsty Irish Runners, followed by Orangetheory Fitness – Walpole and Senior Aerospace. Medals were also awarded to the top three male and female best times in seven different age categories. Congratulations to all the finishers!
