Bridge Fest 1st Annual 5K

I am looking for runners and donors for my work's first annual Bridge Fest. It is the first race that The Bridge of Central Massachusetts has run.  It is a 5k road race on October 1st in the city of Worcester, MA.  I am looking for runners to sign up and run.  The fee is $25 and you will get a cool t-shirt. All of the money goes to our company's health and wellness program.  We are a non-profit human services company that works with children, teens and adults with mental illness and adults with developmental disabilities.  


Join Us as we hold our First Annual BridgeFest on October 1, 2011. All proceeds will go towards our Health & Wellness Initiative at The Bridge.

DID YOU KNOW? On average, adults with a major mental illness have an average life expectancy of 20 years younger than those without mental illness. We are working to change that through activities such as smoking cessation, nutrition, and physical activities, but we need your help.

You can be a part of BridgeFest in a variety of ways. (1)Be a participant in our 5K (2) Support a walker/runner and make a donation.(3) Attend the Festival (4) Be a volunteer

Only participants that register as a runner will be officially timed. Medals will be awarded to the top male & female runners for each age category.

BridgeFest kicks off with a 5K run/walk and then continues into the day with arts & crafts, kids activities, pet activities and food.
