The Angel Run Needs Your Support!
The preregistration for the Angel Run that ended yesterday included about 25% more runners than a year ago. Over 1,000 runners registered in time to get the lower entry fee and T-shirts, versus about 800 last year.
More runners means
- more families having holiday fun, and
- more monies to distribute to Medfield families in need.
The Angel Run is Medfield’s family fun holiday tradition, and this year –
- 2PM on Sunday, December 7
- starts and ends at MHS
- after party is in the BMS cafeteria
- entries are available up until race time
The American Legion Auxiliary is selling candle lit luminary bags to honor living veterans and in memory of those veterans who have passed away. The bags will be displayed in Baxter Park on Veterans Day (Tuesday, November 11, 2014) and lit at 5pm along with a short ceremony. [Bags will be displayed at Noon, lit at 5pm and removed after 9pm]
All proceeds from this fundraiser will be used to support Auxiliary program for veterans and their families, the Stephen Hinkley award, and Girls State program. Some veteran programs we support annually are Christmas Gift Shop at West Roxbury VA (give wrapped gifts to veteran patients that they can give them to their family and a gift for the Veteran, Coffee hour at VA (free coffee and treats on a Wednesday morning), HomeStart (Homeless Veterans transitioning into homes).

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!
