BENEFITING: Team IMPACT
I am running the Falmouth Road Race to support Team IMPACT which is a terrific organization, see below for more. I have been inspired and motivated by the people living with CF that I have met and by their families that support them. CF is a genetic, progressive life threatening disease. Patients can spend several hours a day on their treatments while striving to live otherwise balanced lives. I am running in honor of those patients who have motivated me as well as the broader CF community.

in May of 2011, Team IMPACT matches children with life-threatening and chronic illnesses with college athletic teams. The children are drafted onto local teams and are given the social and psychological boost they need to get through their treatments and beyond. On August 20th, 2017, the GoTeam will take on the 7-mile Falmouth Road Race course to raise funds to expand the efforts to match more children with collegiate teams across the country. Please support our runners for the 2017 New Balance Falmouth Road Race by making a gift online. If you prefer, you can mail in your donation to Team IMPACT/Attn: Falmouth Road Race, 500 Victory Rd. 4th Floor, Quincy, MA 02171.
