On Saturday, May 27th, North Shore Bank was the Title Sponsor of the fifth annual Gold Star Run for Honor in Saugus which was held in memory of CPL Scott Procopio who was killed in action 11 years ago in Ramadi Iraq.

The event kicked-off at 7:30AM from Saugus Center. Featuring 5K and 10K routes, as well as a Kid’s Fun Run, the race started in front of Town Hall and finished on Taylor Street. 100% of the event proceeds are allocated to the CPL Scott J. Procopio Memorial Scholarship program to provide high school seniors with academic scholarships. Procopio, a Saugus native and Marine Corporal, was on his second deployment as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom, having previously served in Fallujah in 2005. He was killed in action as a result of a roadside bomb on the morning of April 2, 2006.

According to brother and Event Coordinator, Michael Procopio:

“We couldn’t have been happier with this year’s turnout. We attracted about 300 runners. It was really amazing to see everyone who participated in the event and we were able to raise over $16,000.” He went on to say, “I’d like to thank North Shore Bank for once again stepping up as our title sponsor. 
They are a great community partner and always there to help.”

Kevin M. Tierney, President and CEO of North Shore bank stated:

“We are proud to once again be a part of this great event.” He continued, “It nice to see so many come out to raise money for the families of fallen members of the U.S. Armed Forces.”
