Angel Run Reminder – Register by 11/3


Time is Running Out

Early Bird Registration Closes November 3rd. Don’t miss your chance to get an Angel Run T-Shirt

Have you heard the news? The Angel Run is spreading its wings! Recently the USA Track & Field Association came to Medfield and certified the course as an official 5K. As a result the starting line has been moved to Medfield High School and the post race party will be in the Blake Middle School cafeteria giving us more room and getting rid of that annoying bottleneck that always happened at the one main door. Runners, walkers and strollers will still follow just about the same course as in years past and can expect to see all their favorite decorations and entertainers on the route!

What can you do? Register today for $25.00 per runner at Medfield Foundation and start guessing what color this year’s shirt will be. Please also consider a donation to the Medfield Foundation and put a special message on the back of that t-shirt. All donations really help us achieve our goals. Runners registered by November 3rd get the Angel Run t-shirt included with their registration.

Proceeds from the race help Medfield families in need. This is a perfect way to kick off the holiday season with a good deed and a great run/walk. We hope to see you on Sunday, December 7th at 2pm with bells on!
