Lace up your running sneakers.  The 2nd Annual Run for Hunters Heart is coming soon.

The run begins at Fort Taber New Bedford on Sunday, September 25th at 9 a.m.

The mission of the run is to raise awareness for congenial heart disease. All proceeds will be donated to two local CHD families to help out with the costs of hardships due to extended hospital stays and medical expenses.

It is a 5k run in total and you can get registration details from their Facebook page along with more information. You can also contact Scott Peets at 774-473-3338 or by email at
