Swansea, MA, November 03, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Total Fitness Clubs (TFC) announced today they will be holding their second Thanksgiving 5k Run & 3k Walk on Thursday, November 26, 2015 at their Swansea, MA location, Swansea Total Fitness. 100% of the proceeds from this Event will be donated to the Heather Abbot Foundation.
The 2015 Race beneficiary is the Heather Abbott Foundation. Boston Marathon bombing survivor Heather Abbott launched a foundation aimed at helping others who have also lost limbs. The Newport native was hit by shrapnel from one of the bombs. Her leg was badly damaged and she was left with the decision of whether or not to amputate her left leg below the knee. Her foundation helps provide customized prostheses to those who have suffered limb loss through traumatic injury, with a special focus on women and young girls. The Heather Abbott Foundation envisions a world where individuals who have suffered limb loss can live the life they love.
The Event starts at 7:45 a.m. and will begin rain or shine. 3craceproductions will be timing the race and supplying numbers. The Event route will be traveling north out of the parking lot onto Swansea Mall Drive up to Locust Street then turn back around and finish at the Swansea Crossing parking lot at the corner of Swansea Mall Dr. & Milford Rd. Registration fee is $25.00 and participants can register both online and onsite the day of the Event ($30.00 registration fee for day of race).
Online Registration is available here https://g2racereg.webconnex.com/swansea5k2015. For questions and additional information contact Libby Castro at firstname.lastname@example.org or 508-679-9793.
