CUMBERLAND – The 7th annual B. Glad Memorial 5K Run and Walk is returning to the Monastery on Saturday, Oct. 16, at 10 a.m., and all the proceeds from the event will go directly to the town’s Happy Basket Program, which provides more than 700 food baskets during the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons to families in need.
This event honors the memory of Bill Glad, a lifelong Cumberland resident who gave his time and energy to local causes.
The organizers of the event, David, Olivia, and Adam Barboza, are soliciting sponsors, as well as donations of cash or items for a raffle. Donations can be mailed to B. Glad Happy Basket 5K, 11 Tower Hill Road, Cumberland, R.I., 02864.
