Barrington resident and FuelBelt company owner Vinu Malik helped organize the “Barrington to Boston Run” on May 15 — joggers ran a 4.15-mile course that started and finished on Chachapacassett Road. Organizers also collected donations for One Fund Boston.
“We had a tremendous turnout despite the high wind and intermittent rain. I haven’t seen that many people run down Chachapacassett like that before,” Mr. Malik wrote in an e-mail following the event.
“When you’re able to bring that many people together on a school night and raise over $5,000 for the One Fund, I call that a great night. Some of you were exceedingly generous, so thank you again!”
Organizers also designed and sold special t-shirts to raise money for One Fund Boston. The shirts featured the “Boston Strong” logo on the front with Barrington and the number 1 on the back.
