MassBay Holds Successful 5K Race in Honor of Marathon Bombing Victim

On a beautiful Sunday morning on September 29th, more than 160 runners, walkers, and families participated in a 5K race/walk fundraiser at MassBay Community College.

Event organizers estimate $6,500 was raised on behalf of the Krystle Campbell Scholarship Fund, which was established this year by the MassBay Foundation Board. The Fund honors Krystle Campbell, a MassBay graduate who lost her life at the Boston Marathon finish line at the age of 29.

“The Board felt strongly that we wanted to honor Krystle’s memory by establishing a fund that will benefit future students who are just like her,” explained Foundation Board Chair Michelle Drolet. “Krystle was at MassBay to work hard, strengthen her skills, get a good job, and improve her life. We believe there is no better way to honor Krystle than to provide financial support to future MassBay students who are trying to do the same thing Krystle did.”

Held: Sunday, September 29th, 10 am at MassBay Community College
