26.2 Foundation Continues Support for Hopkinton's Schools

In 2006, the 26.2 Foundation, then known as the Hopkinton Athletic Association, spearheaded the funding, design, and construction of new bleachers for the Hopkinton High School athletic field. Collectively, the Boston Athletic Association (B.A.A.) and the 26.2 Foundation donated $350,00 to fund this project that is now enjoyed by the students and families of Hopkinton. Since 2006 and for a total period of 10 years, the 26.2 Foundation will make its $10,000 payment to the Hopkinton Public Schools while the B.A.A. contributes its portion in payments of $25,000 per year.

26.2 Foundation Executive Director Tim Kilduff presented this year's contribution in person to the School Committee at their meeting on September 12, 2013.

Vineyard Church Program Focuses on Spiritual and Physical Health

Vineyard Church Family Life Pastor Areli Biggers wanted to create a class for women at the church that combined exercise with spirituality. After reading the book "Running by the Book" by Corrine Baur, Biggers was inspired to base her class off of the principles of that book. The class, which is designed for women of all abilities, follows the book's 12-week guide of positive empowerment, with each week focusing on a different topic that relates the messages of bible scripture back to the challenges of exercise and pushing through adversity.

The 21 women in Biggers' class have been working extremely hard to meet the end goal of the program, to complete a 10k. At the end of the twelve weeks, the class will be participating in the AFA Veterans Fun Run in Bedford on November 9, 2013.

Although the class has been in session for a few weeks now, Biggers encourages all who are interested to still join the class, which meets Thursdays at either 9:30am or 6:30pm for cross training and on Saturday mornings for runs.

For more information about the class, visit www.vineyardhopkinton.org/get-plugged-in/for-women. Or contact Biggers at areli@vineyardhopkinton.org
