From: Be There Do That
Hyland’s, a leader in natural medicines, is pleased to
announce their title sponsorship with the 2012 Run For All Ages, a 5K race and all-day event held
in Wakefield, MA on Saturday, November 3, 2012.
New England 65+ Runners Club
Created by the New England 65 Plus Runners Club, the Run For All Ages is held each year
in Wakefield, MA to support fitness across generations. Specifically, the race provides an
opportunity for very young runners to compete and share in the fun and excitement of a road
race. This year, they expect 400 to 500 participants on race day.
Described as flat, fast, and scenic, the 5K course that loops around Lake Quannapowitt is open
to anyone. So far this year, the youngest runner registered is 6 years old and the oldest is 87!
All proceeds benefit the Wakefield Educational Foundation, a local non-profit whose mission is
to provide an enriching educational environment for children.
“We are excited to pair with an event that exemplifies the motto of our wellness initiative
program, Be There, Do That,” remarks Thao Le, Hyland’s V.P. of Marketing. “The Run For All Ages
event and the 65 Plus Runners Club members inspire individuals to live life to the fullest by not
letting age hold them back.”
The 65 Plus New England Runners Club has become the perfect outlet for individuals 65 and
older who wish to stay active. The Club strives to achieve greater recognition for their growing
group of senior athletes by encouraging race directors and sponsors to include age categories
in their events at least up to 70 years of age. Prior to the organization of the club, most athletic
events failed to have age categories beyond 50+. The club has made great strides in this
endeavor. With their determination and perseverance, more than 95 percent of athletic events
in New England now include age divisions of 60, 70, and even 80.
Hyland’s is pleased to support a race that was created with such an important mission at
heart. To learn more about the Run For All Ages, please visit www.runforallages.com. For more
