We try to participate in community events like this often. The fact that this race was for such a worthy cause only provided an added incentive to run hard!
Hopkinton, MA (PRWEB) June 20, 2013
On Saturday, June 15th, a team made up of employees and family members from United Home Experts participated in the 10th annual Sharon Timlin Memorial 5K Race to Cure ALS.
The race, which took place at Hopkinton High School, in Hopkinton, MA, benefitted The Angel Fund, an independent nonprofit charity dedicated to ALS research. Over 2000 athletes participated in the event, the proceeds of which all went towards the Angel Fund’s mission of finding a cure for ALS.
The six-person team from United Home Experts helped contribute to the total raised for the Angel Fund.
“Our team was proud to participate in this event,” said Lilia Gosselin of United Home Experts. “We try to participate in community events like this often. The fact that this race was for such a worthy cause only provided an added incentive to run hard!”
An eleven person team from United Home Experts participated in a similar event at the Westborough Spring Festival in May. The festival, which is organized by the Westborough Rotary Club, also included a 5k, car show and military exhibition, and even a business expo which United was invited to attend as a bronze sponsor of the annual event. There was a great turnout among local businesses restaurants and families.
Despite a hilly course, everyone on the United team finished strong, with two members finishing 2nd in their division.
“We like to think that our restoration projects offer a valuable service to both our customers and the communities they live in, and we are honored by their patronage,” said Gosselin. “Events like the Sharon Timlin Memorial 5K and the Westborough Spring Festival give us a chance to connect with and give back to the communities we are proud to serve.”
