PLAINVILLE – The annual GE 5K road race benefitting the Petit Family Foundation took place in Plainville Sunday. The 3.1 mile race started on Route 10 and finished in front of the Plainville General Electric facility.
The annual road race honors the memories of Jennifer Hawke-Petit, and Hayley Elizabeth and Michaela Ross Petit, who were murdered in a home invasion in 2007.
The Petit Family Foundation funds are given to foster the education of young people, especially women, in the sciences and to help improve the lives of those impacted by chronic illnesses.
