Our first-ever Virtual 5K was a great success! More than 350 runners helped us Run COVID out of Town from Holderness to London to Thailand and Sweden. Together we raised more than $5850 for Speare Memorial Hospital’s COVID-19 Fund.
Speare Memorial Hospital’s COVID-19 Fund goes directly to covering expenses related to:
Purchasing adequate Personal Protective Equipment (masks, face shields, isolation gowns, and gloves) for the safety of our medical staff, employees, and patients;
Preparing the hospital and the alternate care site at Plymouth State University ice arena for the expected increase in COVID-19 cases;
Covering unreimbursed medical care costs to treat COVID-19 patients;
Offsetting the loss in revenue from reducing non-emergency related medical services (elective surgeries, primary care services, etc.).
We are truly grateful for everyone’s support and participation and we want to recognize a few participants for their race-day spirit!
The Costume Award goes to The Flynn Family: David Flynn ‘96, Amy, Molly, Brady, and Anna.
The Pet Award goes to Grace Adams ‘24, her brother, Nate, and Vega, a German Shorthaired Pointer puppy.
The Community Spirit Award goes to the Gras Family - Evan Gras '24, Tyler Gras '23 and parents

The works of art on the walls of this digital gallery were made by Holderness School students representing grades 9-12 in various photography and studio art classes throughout the 2019-2020 school year.
Some of the images are an observation and illustration of the incredible complexity and significance of the time we live in; some pieces are commentary about pollution and climate change while other pieces are simply beautiful and pleasing to view. They all have merit and purpose.
The artwork also illustrates the interests and concerns of young artists figuring out their role in the world. Their work is sincere and candid and shows the depth of talent in the visual arts here at Holderness School. These students are extremely creative, intelligent, mature, and most of all, capable of creating insightful artwork with substance and significance.
Celebrating its 141st Commencement, Holderness School honored the great Class of 2020. While we could not gather on Livermore Common, we celebrated these seniors in a touching -- and our first-ever -- virtual Commencement ceremony. Although far apart, the strong bonds of the Holderness School family were palpable today as we welcomed these amazing seniors as our newest alumni!
