24th Annual Grafton Gazebo Road Race benefits Kai’s Village, Recreation scholarships

RoadRaceStartThe 24th annual Grafton Gazebo Road Race has a twist this year — for the first time, it is being co-sponsored by a new local non-profit, Kai’s Village.

Kai’s Village is named for Kai Parker Rezendes, who died at the age of 2 last fall from an inoperable brain tumor. Kai’s Village provides community-based support for families facing the challenges of disability and serious illness.

The Grafton Gazebo Road Race is scheduled for Saturday, May 4 at 10 a.m. This 5-mile wheel-measured course along scenic roads starts at the Grafton Police Station and finishes at Grafton Memorial Municipal Center (rear of building), Route 122. This year a 1.5 mile family walk will be added, along with music, refreshments, games and other activities at the Municipal Center before, during and after the race.

Registration is online here or by 8:30 a.m. the morning of the event. Sponsors and volunteers are also needed.

All proceeds will benefit the Grafton Recreation Scholarship Fund and Kai’s Village.
