PRESS RELEASE / April 15, 2022 (Woburn, MA) – Lord Hobo Brewing is excited to announce that it will be hosting its inaugural 6.17K Charity Run on Sunday, June 19 to benefit the Greater Boston Food Bank.
“In 2020 we were elated to celebrate our 5th anniversary and had a full slate of events scheduled, highlighted by our first-ever road race! Unfortunately, COVID-19 changed our plans. Two years later, we have scheduled the event once again and are thrilled to be able to celebrate this incredible milestone with our loyal fans, employees and the community of Woburn!” states Kate Ballenger, Director of Customer Experience.
Lord Hobo is putting together a week-long list of events that conclude with the Lord Hobo 6.17K Charity Run. Starting and ending from the taproom in Woburn, runners will enjoy a race that culminates with a tailgate experience complete with a concert, beer, live music and much more in our parking lot adjacent to the brewery.
They will be donating 50% of the proceeds from the event to the Greater Boston Food Bank, whose mission is to “End Hunger Here.” It is the largest hunger-relief organization in New England and among the largest food banks in the country.
The 617 brand has recently expanded for Lord Hobo, adding a new 617 Lager to diversify the illustrious, hop-centric portfolio.
“We take pride in our Boston roots and are excited to support our local community. Hosting a 6.17k Charity race on 6/17 weekend to benefit the Greater Boston Food Bank is everything that this brand stands for,” states Marketing Director Aubree Karls.
The race will begin at 11 a.m. with the post-race party beginning at 11:30. For more information or to register, visit www.lordhobo617k.com.
