Gordon Faculty/Staff Run in Charity Race

Last night six runners crossed the finish line in bright blue Gordon College shirts at the JPMorgan Corporate Challenge to raise money for local charities. This was the third time a team of Gordon faculty and staff had run the 3.5 mile course through Boston’s streets. “It was a good time, and the six Gordon runners were part of the 12,000 runners in Boston last night,” said one Gordon runner, Dr. Dwight Tshudy, associate professor of chemistry.

The team joined participants from over 650 New England companies running to benefit two Boston area charities, the Emerald Necklace Conservancy and Horizons for Homeless Children.
