Alderman at Large John Connolly is seen here running in the Memphis Blues and Barbeque 5K Run this past weekend in Davis Sq. It was a benefit fundraising race for Multiple Sclerosis research sponsored by Tommy McCarthy, owner of the Burren (pictured below with Connolly) and Paul Collyer and his B.A. Event Promotions. Over 850 people ran and finished the traditional 5k course. $5K was raised and a check presented to the regional Multiple Sclerosis Association at the post race event.
