Katie McQuaid's Scene in Manchester: Time to lace up and hit the road
The Kosinskis, despite having insurance, are still facing hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical bills from CJ’s time at Manchester’s Elliot and Boston Children’s hospitals.
But John, April and their 4-year-old daughter, Kayla, continue to stay positive and have faith that it will all work out, despite having to move in with family to help save money.
The Boston Burrito 5K to Remember CJ kicks off at 6:15 p.m. at Stark Park, winding through the neighborhoods of Manchester’s North End.
Several local businesses have already stepped up to the plate as sponsors of this event through donations of cash, products and services. If you would like to join in helping the Kosinskis as a sponsor or race-day volunteer, please email Amelia Hayes at email@example.com.
Those who register today through Friday will be entered into a special raffle.
Keep your sneakers on
As you may have noticed, its walk-a-thon season here in Greater Manchester. These annual gatherings release seas of people in matching T-shirts out into our communities to raise money and awareness for various non-profits and causes.
And a new walk is joining the pack on Saturday, June 14, with The Spina Bifida Association of Greater New England’s first ever Walk-N-Roll here in New Hampshire.
