There’s a whole lot of running going on at Atlantic Station this fall. If you are so inclined, you have five chances to run a 5K while also giving back. Of course, you don’t have to run or walk to support a good cause — you can volunteer or just pull up a seat and cheer everyone on. Here’s a rundown of the 5K fun (all events are linked for additional details) :
