SMILE Mass has created a junior and adult Ambassador team. Our motto is “We run for all those who can’t.” SMILE Mass Ambassadors get the privilege to enable kids and adults with disabilities the chance to do it all! Our Ambassadors will support a Captain (individual with disabilities) through an entire race, allowing them their moment of glory of finishing a road race; being part of their community, doing what so many families take for granted!
SMILE Mass has a team of runners participating in the Falmouth Road Race on August 16, 2019.
The race is seven miles long and begins in front of the Woods Hole Community Center, near the drawbridge on Water Street. The first three miles are narrow, hilly, winding tree-shaded roads, while the last four miles are open on the flat right next to Martha’s Vineyard Sound. A small steep hill lets you know that you are beginning the last half-mile of the race. Once you crest the hill it is all downhill to the finish.
New this year we will have an extra ordinary after party for all our SMILE Mass runners and their cheerleaders (friends and family) right at the finish line!
If you have run Falmouth before you know how big of a deal this is.
Soprano’s Casino by the Sea will be hosting us!
The fundraising commitment is $1000. SMILE Mass will provide your bib number and a running shirt. If you would like a hotel the night before, the fundraising commitment is $1500.
To get to the restaurant, simply cross the finish line and hug to the right – the restaurant will be right there. More details will follow. All SMILE Mass runners will be VIP guests of Soprano’s Casino by the Sea. Food and non-alcoholic beverages will be served for all SMILE Mass runners and their guests.
To run Falmouth on behalf of SMILE Mass you are committing to raise $1000. If you would like a hotel room the night before, the fundraising commitment is $1500.
We still have a couple of bib numbers. Deadline to register is February 27, 2020. If you would like to run for SMILE Mass, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 617-967-9955.
