Mt. Washington Bank Warms Up for the 6th Annual 5K Bay Run/Walk Road Race benefiting the Mt. Washington Charitable Foundation
Sunday, October 16th

Mt. Washington Bank announced that its sixth annual 5K road race will take place Sunday, October 16th.  Adults and children of all ages and from all communities in Greater Boston are invited to run or walk the flat, scenic course, overlooking Dorchester Bay and Carson Beach.  The 5K run/walk begins at 10:00 am from DCR’s Day Boulevard at 165 Day Boulevard and heads out toward Castle Island, before looping back to start/finish.

The event also includes an awards ceremony (scheduled for 11:30 a.m.) where $250 in cash prizes will be awarded to the top overall male and female runners and $50 prizes will be given to top male and female runner in each age group.  A 50-yard dash for kids on the beach rounds out the family-friendly events. 

Proceeds from the race will go to the Mt. Washington Charitable Foundation in support of various educational programs in the communities that the Bank serves.  “Last year’s road race drew approximately 300 participants and raised $50,000. We hope to achieve the same level of success this year, but most of all we are looking forward to a day of fun with hundreds of community members,” said Ed Merritt, President of Mt. Washington Bank.

Mt. Washington Bank is also continuing the “Non-profit Challenge”.  The top three (3) non-profit organizations that have the most participants will receive donations of $1,000, $750 and $500, respectively.  Additionally, three awards of $250 will be made from the pool of other organizations besides the top three.

Non-profits interested in this aspect of the race should contact Jack Forbush, (857) 524-1141 or Katie Eno, (857) 524-1120 at Mt. Washington Bank.  For more information or to register, visit www.MtWashingtonBank.com or stop into any of the Mt. Washington Bank branch offices.
