  • Judy’s Run/Walk

    Judy’s Run/Walk on the Thetford Academy trails

    Benefiting the Melanoma Foundation of New England

    Sunday May 22nd. Kick off time is 10:00AM, but feel free to come any time before 1:00PM

    Join us in honoring a special teacher, mother, wife, and friend as you run/walk along the Thetford Academy trail system.

    Judy taught special education at Thetford Academy for over 28 years before losing her courageous battle to cancer. She had been diagnosed with Melanoma, an aggressive type of skin cancer that spread to her brain and bones. She died in July, 2015.

    The TA trails consist of the 5KM Dan Grossman trail where every October over 2,000 high school cross country runners from New England and beyond come to compete in the “Woods Trail Run”. If 5KM is too short a distance you can easily connect to Mimi’s trail. This 5.2 mile out and back loop takes you to the top of Holton Hill a 500 foot vertical climb where you will be rewarded with outstanding views of the Upper Valley.

    Since ARC Plumbing and Heating of Bratford, VT has graciously supported this event. there will be no registration fee. Just bring a check made out to MFNE for any amount.

    Being a devote teacher, Judy would be pleased that donations would support this organization because they support Education and awareness of Melanoma.

    Bring kids and furry friends, (dog biscuits will be provided).

  • Used Running Shoe Collection

    UVRC to start collecting used running shoes for recycling, “re-purposing”, through the More Foundation Group. Look for the UVRC collection box at the Hanover Turkey Trot 10K on November 22nd, 2015.

    Did you know that your old athletic shoes (running & soccer) can be re-purposed into agricultural training, tree nurseries, and much more? A single pair of used athletic shoes can also remove one ton of carbon from the atmosphere, while helping lift an entire family out of poverty. Those dusty shoes in your closet have more power than you know!

    The MORE Athletic Shoe Re-purpose Program: We want to help you harness that power by supporting the MOREFoundation Group (a Delaware 501c3 non-profit.) MORE provides used athletic shoes to vendors in Africa. The proceeds enable MORE to send millions of tree seeds and training to the poorest of rural farm families.

    Shoes to Trees: Instead of decomposing in landfills, your used athletic shoes can be re-purposed to offset tons of carbon from the atmosphere and regenerate farm land through agro-reforestation. Get all the facts at MOREFoundationGroup.org

    How You Can Help: Bring in your used – but not abused – athletic shoes. The MORE Foundation needs athletic shoes (running and soccer, sizes 6 – 12.) It’s time to change your shoes and change lives.
