The New England Center for Children is seeking more members for its Falmouth Road Race running team. The deadline for registrants is a week from today, so volunteers would need to coordinate soon – especially with the holiday in the middle of next week.
The school’s request was also a kick in the pants, reminding me that I’ve been meaning to share photos from NECC’s 5k in Southborough earlier this year. Scroll down for some highlights.
Some of the runners who enjoyed the NECC event might want to consider helping out at the Falmouth Road Race. But you should note that it’s a more serious race. The 7 mile Falmouth running race with time requirements and prohibitions on jogging strollers.
7 miles, Cape Cod, Sun, Sand. If you’ve ever wanted to run the Falmouth Road Race, this is your chance! The New England Center for Children is looking for individuals to join Team NECC. The fundraising minimum is $1,000. All donations to NECC fund research on early intensive behavioral instruction, ensure students have the best equipment to meet individual learning needs, provide vocational training, support graduate training opportunities for teachers, and allow us to share educational research findings with clinicians and teachers around the world.
Now, back to the 5K. . . The annual 5K was held on May 11th, a gorgeous spring day in Southborough. NECC thanked participants:
the sun was shining, the burgers were cooking, the music was rocking, and YOU were a part of 1,200 runners, walkers, students, families, volunteers, and sponsors that came together for The New England Center for Children’s 5K Walk/Run for Autism. The event has raised $238,383 to date, making this our most successful 5K ever!
NECC’s fundraiser was suitably family friendly for a school focused around students with autism. While the race included some runners pushing themselves, it also included walkers, some of whom were literally pushing others.
There was a mix of NECC students and staff, families and friends, and Southborough community members. All of these photos are copied from NECC’s Facebook album. You can also see NECC’s video of the day here.
