Mental health referral service

The William James Interface Referral Service

The School Department and the town signed up with The William James Interface Referral Service, which is a mental health referral service for any resident.  Interface phones are answered by mental health professionals, and they match callers with appropriate clinical staff.  Interface does the legwork, and makes referrals based on the variables. The service became available for Medfield residents November 1.  See the Interface website for other resources – William James Interface Referral Service

Angel Run Update: Race Details for Sunday

Important information for Sunday’s Angel Run
View this email in your browser
 angel-run-2016

The MFi Angel Run is this Sunday

Thank you to everyone who has already registered for the 2017 MFi Angel Run and for your support of the Medfield Foundation.

This Sunday will mark the 12th anniversary of the Angel Run! Over 1,275 runners and walkers have already registered and will be lacing up their shoes and heading out on the course for Medfield’s most cherished holiday event.

Here are a few details to help make sure you are ready for the big event.

  • Race shirts and bibs will be delivered to Medfield residents on Wednesday (and possibly Thursday) this week. If you don’t receive your package by end of day Thursday, please email us at angelrun@medfieldfoundation.org. Be sure to look at your front door, side door or even in your mailbox before contacting us 🙂
  • If you live outside of Medfield, you can pick up your shirt and bib at the Registration desk starting at 11am on Sunday in the Medfield High School Cafeteria. The high school is located at 88 South St, Medfield, MA 02052 or get directions here.
  • If you haven’t yet registered or have a friend who would like to participate, you can download the registration form and bring it with you on Sunday or fill one out in the Medfield High School Cafeteria. Registration opens at 11am. The cost per runner is $30 (but no shirt is included). We take cash, checks (made out to Medfield Foundation) or credit cards if necessary.
  • A limited number of Angel Run shirts will be available for purchase for $15.00 in the cafeteria beginning at 11am.
  • The race starts at Medfield High School at 12:30 (note this is different than in years past)
  • Due to bridge construction we will again use the revised course followed last year. We hope to return to our certified course in 2018. You can check out a map of the new course on the Angel Run page of the MFi website.
  • The race ends at Blake Middle School around the back from the high school. There is a post-race party in the middle school cafeteria with tons of snacks and the awards ceremony which begins at 1:30pm. Be sure to stop in.
  • If you registered as a Competitive Runner, you will have special mark on your bib. Your group will be in the first corral and start the race a few minutes before everyone else. Be sure to be at the starting line before 12:30. Only those with the Competitive Runner marking will be allowed in this first group.
  • Parking is available at both Medfield High School and Blake Middle School. There will be parking attendants on hand and please follow any parking directions. Overflow parking is available at Metacomet Park. We suggest arriving early to avoid the crowds.
Come Greet Santa

Santa will be arriving at approximately Noon courtesy of the Medfield Fire Department. Be sure to bring the kids and welcome Santa to the Angel Run.

 AR volunteers

 

We are still in need of volunteers willing to help out for the event. Do you have family that are planning to watch instead of participate? Their assistance could be very helpful. Open positions are listed on our Sign-up Genius site. And even if you are participating, we are looking for Bakers to provide some treats for the after party. Use the Sign-up Genius site to register as a Baker or donate other party items.

 

 

 AR sleigh
Another special treat at this year’s race is the opportunity for sleigh rides on a vintage sleigh kindly loaned by Medfield resident Dick Judge.  For a small donation, attendees will travel a scenic loop around the high school campus in the beautiful sleigh. What better way to enjoy the starting line festivities? Proceeds will support the Angel Run cause of helping Medfield residents in need

 

National Anthem

 

 AR - national anthem
Be sure to catch all the pre-race festivities including the singing of the National Anthem. Congratulations to Zoey Pollard who won the contest to sing the National Anthem. Pollard, a Medfield high school sophomore and member of the chorus, jazz, and acapella singing groups, was chosen by members of the Angel Run committee and Medfield Foundation board from among several talented entries. Zoey will sing shortly before the race starts at 12:30pm.

 

 

Again This Year – Bib Tag Timing
Your time will be automatic as the clock will start when you cross the starting line and stop when you cross the finish line. No more worrying about jockeying for position.

We ask that competitive runners line up towards the front, casual runners behind that group, then walkers, families with strollers and or dogs.  If you are a runner pushing a stroller, you should line up behind the runners group but please be considerate of other runners around you. Be sure to look for the flags indicating where to line up for the start.

 

 

What about the Weather?

While the weather currently looks great for this weekend, though a bit cold, the Angel Run is a rain or shine event. If the weather is a bit unpleasant, we’ll still be doing the event. So dress appropriately and put on a smile.

If you have any other questions or concerns, please email us at angelrun@medfieldfoundation.org.
See you Sunday!
