Fourth Annual Finish Strong Road Race Dedicated Firefighter Joseph Toscano

Tufts Health Plan – One year after the Boston Marathon attack which was followed by the manhunt and shootout in Watertown, the Watertown Police Department started the finish strong 5K road race to raise money for community policing efforts in town. In the following years, hundreds of runners have packed the roads to support Watertown’s first responders. The race begins and ends at Tufts Health Plan in the East End with runners traveling down Arsenal Street and up Mount Auburn street. This year’s race took on new meaning in the wake of Watertown firefighter Joseph Toscano’s death in the line of duty. The entire Toscano family attended Sunday’s race with all five of joseph Toscano’s children and his wife running in the race. The Watertown Fire Department was on hand to thank the community and accept donations for the Toscano fund which has raised thousands of dollars for the family. Prior to the start of the race, Joseph Toscano’s wife Maureen addressed the crowd to express her gratitude for all the support from the community. Here is a full recap of this year’s finish strong 5K road race.
