On September 26th, we hosted our 4th Annual Bourque Family Foundation 7.7K at Ferncroft Country Club in Middleton, MA. We were thrilled to once again have this event in-person, as last year was a virtual event. Nearly 500 runners and walkers participated to benefit the Bourque Family Foundation and we had an amazing time participating in the run and enjoying our post-race celebration with food, drinks, and live music.
This year, our 7.7K Road Race supported two amazing young men: AJ Quetta and Jake Thibeault! The Bourque Family Foundation matched all donations and $15 of each registration up to $5,000 for both AJ Quetta and Jake Thibeault. Our beneficiaries had a whole team of runners and walkers supporting them, and because of their overwhelming support we are able to donate $10,000 to AJ Quetta and $21,675 to Jake Thibeault.
As they crossed the finish line, every racer received a custom finisher medal and commemorative race long sleeve shirt. The post-race party included a free beer from Nantucket Craft Cocktails and Goose Island Beer Company as well as live music from Franciox Simard and Redemption. We celebrated during the post-race party where racers, family, and friends could come together and enjoy the beautiful fall afternoon.
We would like to thank everyone who joined us for our 4th annual 7.7K Road Race! This year was a great success which could not have been done without our generous sponsors, runners, walkers, and donors. Thank you all for your dedication and support of the Bourque Family Foundation.
