Harborside Half Marathon & 5K Charity
Run for a cause with the Harborside Half Marathon & 5K benefiting Debbie’s Treasure Chest!
Debbie’s Treasure Chest was founded in 2007 to provide aid and support for disadvantaged and at-risk families in the Merrimack Valley and surrounding areas. It began with three adopted children, Maxine and Talia Harvey and their friend Anna McCabe, reflecting on how very lucky they were to have been adopted by loving families, capable of supporting them. The trio wanted to give back to their community, and to reach out a hand to those children who had not been as lucky as they.
For several years before founding, the three had collected toys to donate to foster children through the Department of Children and Families, aided by their favorite social worker, Debbie D’Iorio. Sadly, Debbie passed away in 2006, but her influence lived on as the girls’ charitable project received its name.
