DAYS TO GO: 24
The 7th Annual Sweltering Summer 8-Hour Ultramarathon and Marathon in Pittsfield, Massachusetts will be held on Saturday, August 10th, 2019. Since its inception, the event has been about giving back. All profits from the race after expenses are donated. In 2019 we are partnering again like last year with Moments House in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, an organization that provides complimentary care and services for cancer patients and their families in the Berkshires. Help us reach and exceed our goal of $20,000 in donations!
Moments House is a warm home-like daytime facility for all Berkshire County residents living with a cancer diagnosis as well as their families and support systems to come for information and support.
They offer integrative care services through the generosity of many community partners. All programs and services are free and open to the patient and their family and friends. They can find out about services available in the area and comfort and support one another through their shared experiences.
Services and programs include art therapies, mind and body therapies, dance and music, yoga, touch, workshops, support groups, social activities, and bereavement services. These services are offered free of charge to all – including patient, spouses, caregivers, children, siblings, friends.
