HLS Library Raises $960 to Support Special Olympic Athletes

On Saturday, December 5, four HLS Research Librarians competed in the Jolly Jaunt 5K to raise money for Special Olympic athletes.

The course was a 3.1 mile loop around Boston’s Back Bay. The day was gray but the thermostat remained above freezing. Spirits were high with several Jolly Jaunt participants dressed for the occasion, i.e., as Snowmen and Elves.

The HLS Library team had an average race time of 29:27, with Terri Gallego-O’Rourke taking top honors at 25:40.

More exciting is the fact that the HLS Library raised $960 to support Special Olympics.
