Friends of Stanley Park:
On Sunday, October 19, 2014, Stanley Park in Westfield, MA, will host the second annual Run Stanley, a 5k cross country run/walk through the Wildlife Sanctuary trails.
Run Stanley 2013 raised funds to replace the “crooked bridge” along the River Trail, which was washed out in a storm. The severe and long-lasting winter caused us a late start on the bridge building process, but we’re currently in the design development stage. Run Stanley 2014 will continue our fundraising efforts to make additional trail improvements, including a second bridge, signage, trail marking, and path clearing. Your support of Run Stanley 2014 will help make walking, running, and cycling in the Wildlife Sanctuary easier and safer. Help us save the Sanctuary!
