Wakefield Co-operative Bank is proud to be the major annual sponsor of the 53rd Lynnfield Athletic Association (LAA) 4th of July Virtual Races this year, which kicked off on July 4th and continue throughout the month.
With three virtual race options this year, the bank’s donation helped to provide masks to 300 runners, and will fund scholarships for student-athletes in the class of 2021.
The LAA awards 10 scholarships each year to graduating seniors, most of which are funded by sales at the Snack Shack at the high school athletic fields. Due to the current COVID-19 situation, the snack bar has been closed since the winter season ended.
There is no registration fee for the virtual events this year, but anyone wishing to make a donation to support LAA’s initiatives or to participate in the July 4 Miler may do so on their website.
