The Tufts Graduate Student Council 5K Run/Walk is held every year to benefit community and campus organizations. This year we are very pleased to be in our seventh year of partnership with RESPOND, Inc. of Somerville, a center that helps women and their children get out of abusive situations and rebuild their lives; and in our fifth year of partnership with Project Hope, an organization based in Dorchester that helps women to take ownership of their lives through education and "works in partnership with families so they can move up and out of poverty." Detailed information on RESPOND, Inc. and Project Hope is available by clicking the links to your left.
Registration costed $20 and included a free T-shirt. In 2011, first prize for men and women were gift certificates to local restaurants. PLUS The Tufts Alumni Association donated Red Sox tickets which were raffled off the day-of the race to raise money for the beneficiaries!
Last year's 13th Anniversary run was a huge success raising a goodly sum, every penny of which was split between our two beneficiaries!
