11th Annual Memorial Run for ALS to be Held at The Gunnery

The 11th annual Memorial Run for ALS will be held at The Gunnery on Saturday, May 25 at 1:30 p.m. Over the past decade, this event has helped to raise more than $20,000 in support of The Angel Fund for ALS Research, an independent, non-profit charity dedicated to supporting ALS investigations at the Cecil B. Day Laboratory for Neuromuscular Research at UMass Medical Center.
According to Associate Head of School Seth Low, who organizes the event with his wife, Anne, a member of the Washington Montessori School faculty, the lives of several members of The Gunnery community have been touched, directly and indirectly, by amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) over the years. The memorial run, which starts and ends at the heart of campus on The Gunnery Quad, has been generously and consistently supported by faculty, students, their families, alumni and the community.

Registration is $10 per person. Participants may run or walk the course, which is about three miles. To register, click here.

Founded in 1850 by abolitionist, educator, and outdoorsman Frederick Gunn, The Gunnery is a coeducational college preparatory boarding and day school for students in grades 9 through 12/post-graduate. Dedicated teacher-mentor-coaches challenge students to reach their full potential in a home-like setting where character and citizenship are valued as much as intellect and achievement. Individualized attention and high expectations help young learners develop not only the skills and confidence they will need in college, but also the moral compass and love of learning that will serve them well in life. The school attracts ambitious, academically curious students who will both shine as unique individuals and thrive as contributing members of a deeply connected community. By the time they graduate, Gunnery students have become well rounded, grounded young adults with a sharpened sense of who they are and who they want to become.
