Our fifth event of 2014 was the inaugural Platform event.
It’s back-to-school time! What a better way to celebrate going back to school than to celebrate the Hogwarts Express? And to address all those runners who worried that a ten-kilometer run would be a bit much at that point in the year, we responded: if you can’t run a 10k, certainly you can run a 9 3/4k, can’t you? Hence the first iteration of this now annual event was born.
All proceeds from the 2014 inaugural season supported The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund in the battle against pediatric cancer. The donation total in the 2014 season was $10,670. In 2015, HRC relaunched the 2014 medals during the 2015 Time Turner event, and the 2015 donation total was $10,671. In total, HRC raised $21,341.00 to benefit the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund.
