More than 200 people and businesses participated in our 1st Annual International Race for Research, raising $5,000 - What a successful FUNdraiser!

The 5k run was an exciting course through downtown Peabody, and the 2K fun run/walk gave everyone an opportunity to participate – children, adult walkers, and entire families.

Children were treated to seeing their favorite costumed characters, including Scooby Doo, Bob the Builder, Mickey Mouse, Clifford and McGruff the Crime Dog! All participants received a custom t-shirt and lots of goodies and drinks at the post-race party. Dozens of raffle items were given away, and the winners in 8 age categories were awarded trophies.

A special thanks goes out to Peabody Mayor Michael Bonfanti, Mary Bellavance, Judy Selesnick, Harvey Freeman, Margaret Mitchell, Burt & Barbara Gordon, Kayla Sweet, Jim Padian, Rich Reed, Tracey Wilson, the City of Peabody Police Department, and all the corporate sponsors: WarrenBank, Saucony, Peter R.
