Approximately 500 runners/walkers registered for our twelfth Annual 5K Bay Walk/Run on Sunday, October 1st. Adults and children of all ages, from various parts of the city and region, enjoyed the event which included a scenic race route, an awards ceremony, and family fun activities for everyone. We also contributed to over approximately $65,000 raised from the event, which will go to the East Boston Savings Bank Charitable Foundation in support of various educational programs in the communities that the Bank serves.
"For the twelfth year in a row, we are thankful to have received such wonderful support from our communities and the hundreds of people who participated in this important community event”. We are very grateful to our top sponsors, Platinum Sponsor Auburn Construction, and Gold Sponsors Bernkopf Goodman LLP and Stateline Graphics, for their contributions in making our annual road race a success and for helping us give back to the communities that we serve" said Chairman, CEO and President, Richard Gavegnano.

Both individuals received $250 for being the first male and female to finish. Other top winners from their respective age groups received $50 each for their achievement.
