Due to the universal COVID-19 health crisis The Nemasket Group is modifying the way we hold our annual 5K friend/fundraiser. The 5K Your Way will be held from May 1st through May 31st. We are encouraging our supporters to register for the event, enjoy the 5K of their choice, on the day of their choice, while adhering to social distancing guidelines, and avoiding large gatherings. We are not imposing a fee for registration this year, but donations are appreciated. “Selfies” will be posted on our website and Facebook as we hope to motivate others to join our 5K Your Way!
It’s up to all of us to slow the spread of COVID-19. Everyone, including young and healthy people, should avoid large gatherings during this time. Stay up-to-date with public health guidelines from cdc.gov.
