Aces to Honor Memory of Principal Sean Hughes at Broad Street Run

For the second consecutive year, members of the LMSD community are invited to race in the Broad Street Run on April 30 (or support those who are running in the event) as a way of honoring the memory of Principal Sean Hughes!

Mr. Hughes was a legacy Broad Street participant, running in the event for more than two decades, so the race is a wonderful to celebrate and honor the life and memory of the beloved former Aces' principal.

Everyone is invited to join Team Hughes! There is no way to officially register for Team Hughes, but Philadelphia Parks & Recreation has guaranteed entry for everyone affiliated with our team.

You can register for the lottery, which opens on February 1, for a chance to gain entry to the race. To learn more about the lottery, click here. If you do not get in via the lottery, email Joe Callahan at or Diane Shannon at and they will forward your name to race organizers who will grant you entry.

We’d also like to use the Broad Street Run to encourage donations to the Sean Hughes Children’s Trust as well as to the fundraising efforts for the Sean Hughes Memorial at LMHS. More information will be coming soon regarding t-shirts and direct donations to the trust.
