Sun Shines on the 19th Annual Melrose Run for Women

raceAfter several days of rain, we were happy to see the sun peek out just in time for the running of the 19th Annual Melrose Run for Women. Nearly 900 runners took part in this year’s race, held on the morning of Mother’s Day. This family-friendly event, which honors mothers and children, has become a local Mother’s Day tradition. Many women walk and jog the race course, some pushing strollers along the way! Congratulations to everyone who participated in the race this year, and a huge thank you to the Melrose Running Club for organizing this fantastic event!!

adonis-tessThe Safe STEPS for Teens Project is coming to an end soon, so we gathered to celebrate all of the work we have done on this project over the last four years. Members of our Task Force were joined by community members, students, and teachers. We asked everyone to reflect on their favorite memories of the project and we also unveiled new posters created by the Students Against Violence club that will hang at MHS this fall!
