West Newbury Police Dispatcher Running Yankee Homecoming Race to Benefit Children’s Hospital
WEST NEWBURY — Chief Art Reed is pleased to announce that one of West Newbury’s public safety dispatchers is continuing her efforts to raise money for Boston Children’s Hospital through a road race later this month.
On Tuesday, July 31, Dispatcher Kelsey Grenham will be running the Yankee Homecoming 10 Mile Race in Newburyport. The race will be Grenham’s third run on behalf of Children’s Hospital’s Miles for Miracles program, which she’s supported since running the New York City Marathon in 2016.
“Kelsey is an inspiration to the entire department, and we’re all proud of her dedication to this amazing cause,” Chief Reed said. “We’re glad to continue to support her and Children’s Hospital to ensure that kids and families have access to the resources they need.”
Grenham also ran last year’s Falmouth Road Race to benefit the program, which uses fundraising dollars to support better quality of care for children and families, including free housing for families, free parking, language interpreters, research, birthday and holiday celebrations and more.
“I want to thank everyone, including my colleagues at the West Newbury Police Department and the Lt. Kenneth Fowler Foundation, who have been extremely supportive of Children’s Hospital through their continued generosity over the last few years,” Grenham said.
