About the Run
Sonia’s Run is a USATF sanctioned 5K race. The course begins and ends at Sonia’s home parish church, St. George Orthodox Church of West Roxbury. This family-friendly day includes a kids’ fun run, bouncy house, face-painting, clown show, cookout, vendor tables as well as medals and cash prizes for top three male and female finishers overall. Parking is available in the church lot as well as nearby streets. More race details»
Each year, we run to honor Sonia Daly Belcher, an educator and friend who unexpectedly passed away in 2008 at age 32 due to a heart condition, leaving behind her husband and 5 month old son. As a young 21 year old, she helped establish Theophany School, a pre-school and kindergarten program in Needham that provides excellence in early childhood education grounded in the Orthodox Christian faith.
