Marlborough – The Immaculate Conception School in Marlborough held a family fun 5k Oct. 25 to support the school.
This was the first time the school held an event of this nature and it was a great success. About 80 participants registered either as individuals or with their kids for this Halloween-themed fun run. Some runners had ties to school, while others simply came out to support the community. Despite being a timed run, this day was all about the fun. Children, and even some parents, dressed up as they made their way around the course.
The Immaculate Conception school runs from kindergarten through eighth grade and has about 200 total students. The school’s principal Linda Short was extremely pleased with the turnout of the event and the money that it raised. Local sponsors also supported the event with food and drink and fun games for kids upon finishing the course.
