We invite you to join us for Sonia’s 5K Run/Walk. This a family-friendly event, open to runners and walkers of all speeds and abilities.
Each year, we run to honor Sonia Daly Belcher, an educator and friend who unexpectedly passed away at age 32 due to an unknown heart condition, leaving behind her husband and 5 month old son. Sonia had a passion for helping others, especially children. 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. St. George Orthodox Church in West Roxbury, where Sonia was a lifelong parishioner, hosts this annual event every September.
