North Adams: Marathoner to raise funds for BCC scholarship
Local resident Amelia Wood will run 26.2 miles at the Key Bank City Marathon in Burlington, Vt., in May. Throughout the course of her training, she hopes to raise $1,000 for the Michael Grogan Scholarship at Berkshire Community College.
The scholarship honors the late Michael Grogan, a BCC Theater Arts alumnus. Each year a graduate from a Berkshire County high school entering BCC to pursue theater arts is chosen to receive this scholarship.
"Marathon for Mikey" will be hosting a spaghetti dinner and karaoke benefit from 4:30 to 7 p.m. on Saturday, April 13, at the Greylock Community Club.
Tickets are $8 for adults and $7 for seniors and children. Tickets are available for purchase at the Greylock Community Club and I Got Goodies in North Adams, Images Cinema in Williamstown, and at the door.

Donations may also be sent directly to the Berkshire Community College Foundation, 1350 West St., Pittsfield, MA 01210 with "Michael Grogan Scholarship" in the memo line.
