From the Charbo's Run web site:
"On September 2, 1994, Massachusetts State Trooper Mark S. Charbonnier was shot and killed in the line of duty. His senseless murder will remain forever with those who knew him. Mark was special beyond common men, a born leader. He was our guiding light to do the right thing, to fight crime, and stand up to evil. The murder of Mark is a haunting reality that exists for us today and for the rest of our days.
"On March 12, 1995, the family and friends of Trooper Mark S. Charbonnier paid tribute to him by hosting the first annual "Charbo's Run". The first road race drew about 2,000 runners and walkers, which was a tremendous showing that exceeded our expectations. In the 9 years that followed we saw the race grow to as many as 8,000 runners, making it one of the largest road races in Massachusetts and one of the largest Law Enforcement road races in the country."
I reduced my event photography fees for this race in the hopes that more people will download their pictures to commemorate this event. I'm also donating half the proceeds to the MARK S. CHARBONNIER SCHOLARSHIP FUND. I also guarantee my work. If you're not happy with a file you downloaded, I'll refund your money.
Lastly, the pictures are high resolution, large format files. However, they are displayed at low resolution, small format form. So, they are of a much higher quality than what you see on the web site. Check out the "Charbo's Run Examples" gallery for a better idea of what they will look like.
Thank you for visiting my website and the Charbo's Run galleries.
