A spring 5K drew runners, joggers and walkers to raise money in memory of a beloved community member.

This year’s Art with Heart Run for Cheryl was held on the twentieth anniversary of the passing of Cheryl Creonte.

Cheryl was an extraordinary mother of four, loving wife and lifelong Waltham resident. She gave back to her community and was known for her unique artwork and homemade cards.

“She was taken far too soon,” said the race website, “but her light lives on through her children and in the memories of all who knew and loved her.”

The race started and finished at the Shoppers Cafe parking lot at 731 Moody Street.

Proceeds go to the Cheryl Creonte Scholarship Memorial, which benefits Waltham Public Schools and the community.
