Lonergan Insurance Company sponsored the Jingle Bell walk/run in order to raise money for the clubs and sports teams at Medford High School on Saturday in Medford Square. After the walk, everyone gathered together in Santa hats in order to break the World Record for the most people singing a Christmas Carol with Santa Hats on.
I was lucky enough to run the race and can honestly say it was a success. It was a 5k road race that took you from City Hall down by the Middle Schools on a scenic run by the river and then back to City Hall. There was a great number of people who ran in either their winter running gear or a cute festive outfit. Regardless, the race was a hit for everyone of all ages. It brought a great sense of community to the city of Medford while simultaneously bringing support and recognition to all the hard working athletes and club members of Medford High School.
Medford High would like to thank Lonergan Insurance Company, celebrating their 95th anniversary and throwing a huge party in their honor for steering the focus onto the Medford community and supporting us as a school.
