This event benefits the Haverhill Alternative School and TEACH programs at St. James School. Students in both programs have had to overcome various learning and emotional challenges.

Participants are asked to dress in red, white and blue to honor our veterans. Both educational programs have been supporting hundreds of at-risk students for more than 12 years. This event will include plenty of good food and beverages. The race will be officially timed and medals will be given to the top three place winners in various age categories. Free t-shirts will be given to the first 200 people to register.

Team Haverhill plans Artist-Sponsor Mixer: Soles of Haverhill 2014 ‒ Fashion Forward will host an Artist-Sponsor Mixer on Nov. 7 at the Sage Gallery, 136 Washington St.
Sponsored by Team Haverhill, the event will introduce interested potential sponsors and the public to the 30 professional artists from around the state who have submitted 12-inch cardboard mock-ups for the shoe sculptures to be exhibited next year. After sponsors select their preferred designs, artists will receive fiberglass shoe sculpture forms in early December, ready for artistic transformation. The completed shoes will be placed in and around downtown in spring 2014 for a summer-long public art installation.
