The crowds were rowdy and the energy was palpable at Fenway Park on one of the most beautiful November days imaginable. For the second year in a row, a team of 12 Waypoint participants, volunteers, family and friends joined together to take on the challenge of the Spartan Race at Fenway. Our purpose? To raise awareness about the capability of people with disabilities as well as some additional funds to support Waypoint’s yearly programming.
The day was a huge success! It really was an awesome day of encouragement, camaraderie, teamwork, challenge, adventure and perseverance! Additionally, the racers raised a combined $5000 to support the mission of Waypoint!!
A big thank you goes out to all of you who came out, as well as those who rooted for us from a distance. A special thanks also goes to the the team of racers and their communities for investing time and financial support to ensure that Waypoint’s programs continue to positively impact people with disabilities and their communities in the greater Boston area. Last but not least, this wouldn’t have been possible without the support of Alyson Murphy, Greg McEachern and the rest of the team at Spartan Race! AROO!
Want to race with us next year?! Just say the word and we’ll put you on the list. Next year’s race will take place on November 4th, 2017. Start training and line up your sponsors now!!
