Like its namesake, the Community Service Fund Road Race will be off and
running on Saturday, May 4, on the 6K loop from the Walter C. Wood
Sailing Pavilion to the Museum Science, up the Esplanade and across the
Harvard Bridge back to McDermott Court.
The race begins at 9:30am and is open to all runners in the Institute
community, including the Draper Laboratory and Wellesley competitors.
Prizes are offered for the best male and female finishes in overall and
senior divisions and to the swiftest runner under 12.
The entry fee is $7 until May 1 (clip the registration form below) and
$8 up until 9am on race day. The first 400 registrants will receive free
CSF Road Race T-shirts.
Supporters of the CSF include the MIT Credit Union, Dining Services, the
Draper Laboratory, Au Bon Pain, BayBank, the MIT Coop and QRST's.
Drawing prizes for the race have been donated by La Verde's Market, New
Balance, Newbury Comics and Toscanini's Ice Cream.
The CSF drive itself opened earlier this month. All employees should
have received a packet of information describing CSF's activites and
requesting a donation. The CSF was created by the faculty in 1968 as a
means of supporting the volunteer efforts of MIT people in the Cambridge
area. Because the fund is supported administratively by MIT, 100 percent
of contributions support agencies such as City Days, Tutoring Plus,
Just-A-Start and a variety of student-initiated social projects.
