Family Weekend Kicks Off with Inaugural 5k Road Race

October 24th, 2015 by Jessica McCaughey


Holy Cross family and friends kick off Family Weekend with the inaugural “Crusaders Against Cancer 5k” road race on campus. The Crusaders Against Cancer 5K presented by Carr Financial Group supports the 15-40 Connection, a Worcester-based cancer 501(c)(3) charity.


At the completion of the race participants proudly displayed “I Conquered Mount St. James” placards. No other race course like Holy Cross’ exists in New England. The course starts on the track behind the Hart Center at the very top of Mount St. James. Race markers and volunteers then direct runners along a carefully designed course that displays some of the most beautiful aspects on campus. Runners appreciate the gradual downslope through the first half of the course followed by a gradual incline that brings runners back to the track at the Hart Center.

A record number of Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps ROTC alumni, members of the current NROTC unit at Holy Cross, as well as non-alumni, friends and family who support the activities of the Society, attended the dinner, which honors the memory of Rev. Joseph Timothy O’Callahan, S.J., recipient of the Medal of Honor for heroic service in WWII. This year, the keynote speaker was the highest-ranking officer ever to stand at the O’Callahan podium, Adm. Michelle Howard, Vice Chief of Naval Operations. She delivered an inspiring speech about using one’s moral and ethical courage in times of crisis and in everyday life. She also likened the camaraderie of Holy Cross alumni and students to the fellowship among Navy personnel serving on a vessel at sea. (Photo courtesy of Suzanne D’Angelo)
