ABC40 Honor Roll – Road Race Raise Funds for School District

HADLEY, Mass. (WGGB) – Earlier this month Hadley Schools held their first annual 5K road race to benefit ‘The Helping Hearts for Hadley Schools’. It’s an organization that strives to encourage adults and children, in the Hadley community, to get active while at the same time raising funds for special initiatives for its schools.

The first initiative focused on improving technology.

Six-hundred runners and walkers took part in the race.  More than 20,000 dollars was raised.

They got a big help from Tommy Car Auto Group which matched up to five thousand dollars.
