Fundraiser for Those Affected by Boston Marathon Bombings

On April 15, Wentworth honors the lost, the injured, the first responders, and the runners.

All members of the Wentworth community are encouraged to participate in a Run or Walk for those affected by the Boston Marathon bombings. To take part in the fundraiser, simply come to the Schumann Fitness Center on Tuesday, April 15 and be ready to hop on a treadmill.

Between 6:00 a.m. and 11:00 p.m. that day, every mile completed on one of the treadmills will equal $1.00 donated to The One Fund. The event is thanks in part to GymSource and Chartwells.

In addition to the run/walk fundraiser, other notable events related to the Boston Marathon include:
