2015 St. Jude Walk/Run To End Childhood Cancer
On Saturday, September 26, 2015 fifty-two MA HOBY alumni volunteered at the St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer. The event took place at the Xfinity Center in Mansfield, MA and featured hundreds of walkers and runners who took part in the 5 mile course. MA HOBY volunteers helped out by handing out waters, cheering on the walkers and runners along the route, and entertaining children at the Kid’s Zone with various arts and crafts such as mask making and decorating cookies! There was also face painting, a photo booth, a DJ and live music! It was a wonderful day of fun, making new friends, and supporting a wonderful organization with a great goal of ending childhood cancer. The event raised over $290,000. Jenn Hamilton, a Regional Development Representative II with St. Jude said, "Thank you to MA HOBY as always for coming out! You are the most energetic and enthusiastic bunch of volunteers, and we really appreciate all your help!" MA HOBY looks forward to attending the event next year!
