Community engagement continues to grow at 6th annual Shamrock Shuffle 5K
The positive energy was overflowing at Speare Memorial Hospital’s 6th annual Shamrock Shuffle 5K. Over 400 runners and walkers made their way across the starting line at Plymouth Regional High School while a large group of volunteers sporting pompoms cheered everyone on. After finishing their run/walk, many joined the crew shouting encouragement to their fellow participants and giving high fives.
At preregistration many enjoyed taking some time at the children’s table – coloring masks and putting on removable tattoos and stickers as well as posing with St. Patrick’s Day themed props for some photo booth fun. (Scroll down to see all the photo booth and start/finish line photos.)
A very special thanks to all our volunteers including the CERT/MRC team, many local area students and several Speare employees and their family members for their hard work and boundless energy helping to bring it all together.
