A classic fifth

Annual race draws more than 1,000 participants

(Continued)

Five-year Krit Classic sponsors were honored. They include Andover Country Club, Andover Townsman, Bank of New England, Fred C. Church, Indian Ridge Country Club, Institute of Performance Fitness, Kirkwood Printing, Latham Law, Old Time Sports, Pearson Plumbing, Perfectos Caffe, Reid Graphics, Screenprint Dow, Techprint, TSR and Trident Lock & Key.

A 2000 graduate of Andover High School and popular athlete, Kearins was just 26 in September 2008 when she suffered severe head trauma in a bike accident on a rain-slicked bridge in Boston. She succumbed to injuries a short time later.

The Krit Classic was started by Kearins’ family in the months following her death. Proceeds support an annual scholarship to a graduating Andover High senior who embodies Kearins and other causes. For more on Kearins and the Krit Classic in her memory, visit www.kritkearinsclassic.com.
