The Quinn Amsler Memorial 5K Run
Bridge Elementary School is hosting the second 5K run in honor of Quinn Amsler. Quinn was a rising 4th Grader who lost his battle with cancer in July of 2016. He was an active boy who loved all sports and had a spirit that was evident in everything that he did. Even while battling his own illness, Quinn started his own charity while at Children's Hospital in Boston - the Quinn Bin - collecting toys for other children less fortunate than himself. There will be Quinn Bins at Bridge School the day of the race, so please consider donating an unwrapped new toy. The proceeds of this run will be donated to the Quinn Amsler Memorial Scholarship Fund benefiting a Lexington High School Senior. The scholarship is managed by the Trustees of Public Trusts, Town of Lexington.
