MMNT's Second Annual Beards and Beers 5K Nets $14,000 for Charity
More than 300 runners hit the pavement on November 21
and more than 30 volunteers participated in the second
annual Beards and Beers 5K race to raise awareness
for men's health. The race, presented by MMNT, LLC
Certified Public Accountants in Manchester, raised $14,000
for the Curtis D. Robinson Center for Health Equity at
Saint Francis. The Center for Health Equity works as
a resource for the community, addresses disparities in
healthcare, and provides community engagement, patient
education and training, health advocacy, and health
screenings, particularly in the areas of prostate cancer
and diabetes.
Following the race, attendees had an opportunity to enjoy
a party with prizes and food vendors. Five beer companies
were on hand: Samuel Adams, The Hartford Better Beer
Company, Broad Brook Brewing Company, Back East
Brewing Company, and Two Roads Brewing Company.
Plans are already in the works for the third annual event,
scheduled for Saturday, November 12, 2016.
