This year the West Springfield Rotary club announced that all of the proceeds from the 5K will go to benefit the One Fund Boston.
“Because the bombing happened at a running event, the running community has reached out in many ways to help those in need. The Rotary Club of West Springfield would like to do its part as well to support the many people injured on Boylston Street,” said Rotarian Steve Lang, organizer of the Taste of the Valley 5K.
One Fund Boston was established by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Tom Menino to help the people most affected by the tragic events that
occurred in Boston on April 15.
