About This Event
The 7th Annual Tonneson + Co 5k will take place around beautiful Lake Quannapowitt and is great for runners of all skill levels, as well as walkers. Strollers are welcome but no dogs please.
Proceeds from the event will go directly to the Wakefield Food Pantry to benefit the Kids First Program. The Kids First program provides food to families with school age children during the summer months. Many families receive free or reduced price breakfast and lunch during the school year, but this help is not available during the summer. The Kids First program provides the added food items to help replace those meals.
