The Wonder Run is a celebrated part of Wellesley's Wonderful Weekend. We anticipate hundreds of participants and great community support again this year. We hope you will join us! Proceeds generated from the Wonder Run directly support community groups, scholarships for deserving local students, and grants to organizations and programs that provide education, enrichment and essential services to our local population.
The Wonder Run would not be possible without support from our generous Corporate Sponsors: Needham Bank, Roche Brothers, Brendon Properties, and Teri Adler of Pinnacle. Additional sponsorship provided by: SSDS Martial Arts in Wellesley.
