Somerville Road Runners
WEF Board accepts donation from SRR Race Director

Road Runners support Wakefield Educational Foundation

Organizers of the 14th Annual “24 Hour Around the Lake Marathon, Relay and Ultra Marathon” recently presented a portion of the proceeds from the July, 2010 event around Lake Quannapowitt to the Wakefield Educational Foundation (WEF). Somerville Road Runners, the organizers of the run, have been supporting WEF for over 10 years with generous donations from the 24 hour event. WEF Co-Presidents Mary Jennings and Beth Hendriks and WEF Treasurer Christine Wilson accepted the donation from race director Noel Clark. One of the missions of the SRR is to promote a culture of fitness while working with communities to give something back. They have certainly done this in Wakefield by supporting WEF which in turn supports the educational enrichment of the students in the Wakefield Public Schools. WEF is a non-profit, tax-exempt foundation founded in 1989 by a group of concerned citizens to fund enrichment programs in the Wakefield Public Schools.
