Babson College and MassBay Community College in Wellesley have each held 5K road races this month, both raising money for worthy causes.
Two weeks ago, Babson hosted the Babson Runs for Rett race, which traversed the Babson and Olin campuses, with a good steep run up Wellesley Avenue at the finish. The race, held during the school’s alumni weekend, featured a bunch of kids as well as at least a couple of spectators who have Rett syndrome, a rare postnatal neurological disorder that mainly affects females.
Then on Sunday, MassBay hosted its second annual 5K road race and walk to support the Krystle Campbell scholarship fund. Campbell, from the MassBay class of 2005, was killed at the Boston Marathon bombings.
