Looking for a few good men & women!




2017 Fall Frolic 5K and Fun Run

Each year we are thrilled with our community’s commitment and participation and we’re hoping for another repeat on Sunday, October 1st at Lynch Park!   The event is OPEN TO EVERYONE – runners, walkers, parents, grandparents, friends, teachers, students and folks pushing strollers too!  There is truly something for everyone – the 5K (that travels the traditional Homecoming route beginning and ending at Lynch Park) and the half-mile Fun Run for the younger kids.
It’s always a great day!  The goal of the Fall Frolic continues to be three-fold:
  • To raise funds that will enrich the academic programs for more than 2,000 elementary school children in Beverly
  • To create an event whose message encompasses building strong minds and healthy bodies
  • To collaborate more effectively and build unity among the five Beverly elementary schools.

We need your help on Sunday October 1, 2017 to make the 8th annual Fall Frolic 5K and Fun Run safe, fun and successful.
Race Day Details
Fun Run Starts at 9:00 AM
5K Starts at 9:30 AM

Each Elementary School supports this event with 10 volunteers, We hope you can help!

Here is the link to the sign up genius.  .
