The Newburyport Elementary PTO will hold its eighth annual Spring Fever 5K and Family Fun Run May 4. The race will have somewhat of a Boston Marathon theme, according to co-director Kristen Daigle. The event is one of the largest PTO fundraisers that supports a variety of programs for students at Brown, Bresnahan and Molin elementary schools.
“In light of what occurred at the (Boston Marathon), this will be an opportunity for the community to come together as one to celebrate our town and our children,” said Daigle. “
Newburyport Mayor Donna D. Holladay will start the 5K race, and Superintendent of Schools Marc Kerble will host a welcoming ceremony before the fun run.
“It will be a day to heal and a day to celebrate what a beautiful community we live in,” Daigle said.
