Maud Morgan Visual Arts Center celebrates Women's History Month! "We thank Morgan for her efforts in being honest about herself, and being a constant form of inspiration in the art world." https://maudmorganarts.wordpress.com/2018/03/09/womens-history-month-maud-morgan/
On April 29, 2018, the starting gun will go off for the first inclusive 5K race in Harvard Square that recognizes the resilience and tenacity of disabled athletes while celebrating the recent advances in science and technology that are ushering in a new bionic age, according to race director and Cambridge resident, Will Borden. It’s called the Bionic5K and two of the three race founders are amputees. One is the world’s leading scientist in biomechatronics, one is an elementary school teacher, and one has staged and directed six 5K races in Harvard Square from 2011-2016. Borden elaborates, “The 5K is the #1 race distance in the United States. In 2016, 17,000 5K races were held in the US with over 8.2 million finishers. Typical races include one or two disabled athletes in a large crowd of participants. We believe we can do something different.” “By assembling a critical mass of amputee and disabled runners, we can break down barriers and normalize the experience of running alongside people with significant adaptations. In addition, by shining a light on the recent advances in science, technology and rehabilitation medicine, we can engage and inspire a broader group of people as volunteers, runners and supporters, building awareness of the incredible strides that are being made to end disability as we know it today,” adds Borden. “Ultimately, we hope that this truly inclusive race will not only bring different types of runners together but also bring new people into the running community - encouraging those who might ordinarily shy away from a 5k because of disability to join our group of all ages and abilities in celebrating possibilities over disabilities,” Borden added. Contact Will Borden directly, info@bionic5K 617-520-5213 For more information and registration, please go to: bionic5K.com.
