Hundreds of students gathered from Hopkinton Middle school for the annual 2.62 mile run or walk as part of the desire to inspire program. For the 2nd straight year Johnny Cowen crossed the finish line first at a time of 17 minutes and 15 seconds. "This is a really special moment that brings our entire Middle School community together." said Middle School Principal Alan Keller. Keller believes that the event is great for motivating students "the first student that runs across the finish line is an amazing accomplishment, but there's so many other accomplishments a long the way, some of the students who walked and seeing them be able to cross the finish line, it's an amazing accomplishment for a lot of different people in a lot of different ways."
