Every year in May, over 2000 people plus 200 volunteers participate in the Independence 5K Walk, Run, Roll and Stroll. In 2013, both events, which are held on the same day, raised $208,000 through sponsorships, raffle ticket sales, individual and team online fundraising pages, and general donations. Expenses are held to less than 10% of the gross revenue due to the overwhelming generosity of our community supporters.
The all day event is held in Franklin, MA, hosted by EMC2 and includes a competitive and fun 5K race - registered and USATF MA 08001RN certified - plus a 5K walk, roll and stroll through the park and kids Fun Run.
Also there is free entertainment, free food (bagels pizza, burgers, hot dogs), Kids corner with free games, “Bubble Man” , Dress up Photo booth, face painting, music, Yoga demo, massages, health expo, and a Touch a truck area; a raffle with fantastic prizes a special tribute to our Veterans.
Special displays from Franklin Police and Fire Department with the 150 foot Ladder Truck and the US Army National Guard. In addition we get many mascots including Wally the Green Monster, Scooby Doo, Finz from the Worcester Sharks and many more.
This event will be held rain or shine.
Constitution Blvd is closed from 9- 9:45 AM for the runners safety.
