Dr. Deirdre J. Loughlin 5K Race & Walk
The family and friends of Dr. Deirdre J. Loughlin are hosting a 5K Race & Walk with a social-fundraiser following on Sunday, October 15, 2017 at Worcester Fitness in Worcester, Massachusetts. Proceeds will benefit the Dr. Deirdre J. Loughlin Education Fund. In support of this endeavor and as a tribute to Dr. Loughlin, Mayor Joseph M. Petty has declared October 15, 2017 as Dr. Deirdre J. Loughlin Day in the City of Worcester.
In June of 2016, in tribute to Dr. Deirdre J. Loughlin’s forty-plus years of dedicated service to the students, families, and educators of the Worcester Public Schools, the Worcester School Committee dedicated the library of North High School in Deirdre’s honor. In seeking to celebrate this well-deserved honor, Deirdre’s family and friends partnered with the Massachusetts Audubon Society at Worcester’s Broad Meadow Brook Conservation & Wildlife Sanctuary, where she has been an Advisory Board Member for over thirty-years to create the Dr. Deirdre J. Loughlin Education Fund. Once endowed, this fund will directly support programs for students and teachers in the Worcester Public Schools.
We are hoping you will assist us in creating a permanent legacy of Deirdre’s contributions to quality teaching and learning in Worcester Public Schools and to the entire City of Worcester by participating in Dr. Deirdre J. Loughlin Day as a runner/walker or sponsor.
Sponsorship of Dr. Deirdre J. Loughlin Day presents a terrific opportunity for businesses, individuals, and organizations. This one-time fundraising effort offers several levels of sponsorship (see attached). Your generous contributions will not only benefit your company through the multi-tiered promotion of the day, but will directly contribute to enriching the education of Worcester’s youth.
