About This Activity

The Run/Walk for Robin

This event is to honor and celebrate the life of Robin Harvey who died tragically when out for a run, training for her second Boston Marathon this past winter. We hope you will join us as an individual, family or team. The 5K is a run or walk and there is also a 1/2 mile Fun Run for kids 12 and under.

The funds raised at this run are to go directly to the Robin Harvey Scholarship Fund, which is making its transition into the Harvey Foundation. The Foundation will work to empower and assist the pathfinders of education, athletics and community service here on Nantucket. With a vision to assist in the education and perseverance of Nantucket Island residents towards the value of life-long learning, athletic participation and continuing education, while also keeping a priority on the importance of philanthropic work on Nantucket.
