Run For Robin 5k – Sunday November 5 – 10AM VFW towards Siasconset and back – BBQ to follow.
This will be the 3rd Annual Run for Robin 5k. This is a major fundraising event for the Harvey Foundation. This run was originally set up in honor of Robin Harvey, who was tragically struck and killed by a car while training for the Boston Marathon. In her graceful honor we are pleased to host our 3rd annual Run for Robin 5k! Last year we had over 700 participants come out for our second run. Not only is this race set up to pay tribute to Robin and her beautiful life, but also to raise money for the foundation, including the scholarship award. The Harvey Foundation has been working hard this year growing the organization and outreach here on Nantucket. In the past 3 years we have awarded $35,000 in scholarship money, to deserving student athletes going on to further their education with the majority of these funds coming as a result of this race.
