Rotary Club and Town of West Springfield has announced that all proceeds from the Taste of the Valley 5K Road Race will be donated to The One Fund Boston, established by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Tom Menino to help the people most affected by the tragic events that occurred in Boston on April 15. The Taste 5K will take place Sunday, June 9 at 10 a.m. and is held in conjunction with West Side’s Taste of the Valley, sponsored by Chicopee Savings Bank, June 6-9 on the Park Street Town Common.
“Because the bombing happened at a running event, the running community has reached out in many ways to help those in need. The Rotary Club of West Springfield would like to do its part as well to support the many people injured on Boylston Street,” said Rotarian Steve Lang, organizer of the Taste of the Valley 5K.
