Wellesley HS Cross Country Runathon

As of April 16th, Massachusetts General Hospital has 409 Covid-19 patients, about 10% of the statewide total, and 153 in Intensive Care, about 15% of the statewide total. Our health care workers have been working non-stop to keep our neighbors and us alive.  These workers are our neighbors too, and it is time we show them how much we appreciate their service and fuel them to keep fighting for us.

The Wellesley High Cross Country team is hosting a virtual “runathon” this Saturday, through which individual runners will be attempting to run as many miles as they can to show their appreciation, and we would love you to be a part of it.

You can help by choosing to “sponsor” an athlete, meaning that for each mile they run, you agree to donate a certain amount of money (for example, you could sponsor a runner at $5 per mile, and if they ran 10 miles, you would donate $50). Each individual athlete will be running alone, following social distancing guidelines, tracking their mileage using a GPS watch or phone. 

To sponsor an athlete, fill out our google form linked here https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSe5VE-iiujLXYRkxngEiW8tuZu_av7xY8PopCQ0wpYxZlZJoA/viewform?usp=sf_link

The team will then donate 100% of the proceeds to feeding the front lines in the form of purchasing sandwiches from Comella’s Restaurants and send them to the heroes at Massachusetts General Hospital and Boston Medical Center. Each meal is approximately $10.

Thank you so much for creating a strong, supportive community and remember to stay home and stay safe!
