SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP)– Celebrated every third Sunday of June, Sunday is Father’s Day.
More than 70 million men across the country will be celebrated today on this Father’s Day, hundreds of them gathered at the Springfield Jewish Community Center.
Sunday marked the 36th annual Father’s Day Road Race at the JCC. There is a 10K race for adults. There is also a 1-mile Kid’s Fun Run. The course runs through parts of Springfield and Longmeadow.
Registration is $25 for the 10K and the money goes towards the JCC’s scholarship program to pay for things like pre-school for kids, and meals for the elderly.
The 10K race started at 8:30 this morning, followed by the kid’s run, and a Father’s Day family breakfast all in honor of Dad.
