Your Opinion is Important

Don’t forget that the Angel Run survey is still open and we value your feedback. Please reply by 12/31/17 to help us make the race even better for next year.



We Need Your Help!

A few of our key team members have “retired” and we are looking for people to join the team to help plan the 2018 event. As you know, the Angel Run is fully run by volunteers from the community and we cannot do it without people being generous with their time and skills. Specifically, we know we need volunteers in the areas of Treasurer, Post Race Party Coordination and Marketing and Communications. We have an experienced group of leaders and a great team that work closely together and will help any new volunteers with any questions. We’d love to have your involvement, so be sure to respond in the survey and let us know if you would like to help or if you have any questions at all.



Thank You and Save the Date

Save the date for the 2018 MFi Angel Run on December 2, 2018. We hope to see you there. Cheers to all and many thanks from the bottom of our hearts,
The 2017 MFi Angel Run Committee
