NETT's Second Annual Hannah Randolph Volunteer Day at Cradles to Crayons

For the second year in a row, NETT honored Hannah's spirit by spending a day volunteering at a local charity. Last year we painted some rooms at the Home for Little Wanderers. This year, we spent the day at Cradles to Crayons in Brighton. And what a great organization. We sorted donations, made outfits for needy kids in the Boston area and got a feel for what great work these folks are doing every day.

Special thanks to Amanda for organizing the event this year and for all those Mini  Ponies who came out for the day. To see more photos from the day and a special thank you from Hannah's mom, visit our Facebook page.

Congrats to Bob who started the new year right in a local 5K. Here's his report:

"Spur of the moment I decided to run a 5K race New Year's Day in my new Newton running shoes that I had tested on the treadmill and indoor track and loved right away. It was called the First Day 5K and was in the little town of Whitinsville, MA, which is south of Worcester. The reason I chose that race is because my old college roommate lives there and he was running the race too.

The course was either downhill or flat the whole way so was very fast. I ran 22:04, which was just off a PR for me, and was good for first. I bet many of my NETT teammates would have all run PRs on this course.

The only downside was that my appearance bumped by friend down to 4th and out of medal consideration. Although he bought me a beer afterward, I may not be invited back.:)"

Congrats Bob and Happy New Year Everyone!
