The 1st Annual Run for Marissa
Local businesses and companies sponsored Marissa’s Run. With their sponsorship their Company name was printed on the back of the tee shirts. Each participant of Marissa’s Run was given a tee shirt on the day of the run once they gave their $15 donation. The money goes directly into the Marissa A. Lorea Scholarship Fund which in turn goes to Lincoln High School Students qualifying for scholarships each year. The scholarships held to keep Marissa’s memory alive within our town everyday. With sponsorships from over 20 local companies Marissa’s Run was out for immediate success. We were able to raise a total of $15,094 in our first year!
In addition to our sponsors, many local restaurants and companies donated gift cards as well as raffle baskets for the raffle table which totaled over $1,000 in profit to flourish Marissa’s Fund. The New England Revolutions as well as famous singer, Colbie Calliat made extremely generous donations to help aid the success of our day for Marissa.
