This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

The sixth annual GE 5K Road Race to benefit the Petit Family Foundation took place on July 14 in Plainville.

The Petit Family Foundation was set up in the wake of the senseless tragedy of 2007 that took the lives of Jennifer, Hayley, and Michaela Petit. The Foundation’s mission is to honor the kindness, activism, and idealism that were personified in these three women. The Foundation uses its funds to foster education, especially for women in the sciences; improve the lives of those affected by chronic illnesses; and to support efforts to protect and help those affected by violence against women.
