Charity runners Edward Pearson, Stella Adu-Gyamfi, Joseph Byron, and Marna Meltzer-McMorris (pictured, right) took on the added task of reaching a $10,000 minimum fundraising goal. They ran the marathon for NECC through the John Hancock Marathon Non-Profit Program, a program NECC has been part of for more than 7 years.
NECC teacher Hannah Krueger, who ran as a charity runner for NECC in 2017, ran as a qualified participant.
As of Marathon Monday, Team NECC exceeded the team goal by more than $6,000, bringing in over $51,000.
