On August 8, 2015 The Easthampton Friends of Football will be holding their third annual Grid Iron Grind 5K Run/Walk to benefit ongoing improvements to the White Brook Football Field.Back in 2012 Easthampton Friends of Football undertook the task of raising funds to replace the aging football field at White Brook Middle School. This field is the only football field in town and serves as the home field for not only the High School program but the youth program as well, which translates into about 20 games being played on the field in each season.We are excited to say that with the help of the City of Easthampton Community Preservation Committee we have raised enough money to complete phase one of the project, and construction is due to begin in the spring.However we are still working to raise funds for additional improvements including lights, so they can play Friday Night Games “Under the Lights”.Our annual 5K is part of our ongoing fundraising efforts; it is the generosity of businesses such as yours that continue to make this event a success.

This event is a USATF Sanctioned event                                Event # 13-02-484

Where: White Brook Middle School 200 Park Street Easthampton
