angel-run-2016

MFi Angel Run

Registration is still open for the 12th MFi Angel Run which will take place on Sunday, December 3, 2017 starting at 12:30pm at Medfield High School. Please note this is a new start time.

Registration is available for $30.00 per person. Online registration closes on November 26, 2017 at Midnight. If you miss the online registration, you can register at the race on December 3 beginning at 11:00am in the Medfield High School cafeteria.

If you prefer to print and mail in your registration, you can download our registration form. Please be kind and print clearly. Mail-in forms must be received by November 25, 2017.

For anyone who hasn’t done the Angel Run in the past, this is usually a certified* 5K (see caveat below) with chip timing for the serious runner but it is also a fun-run and walk for anyone looking to enjoy the kick-off to the holiday season. From decorations all along the course to musicians and carolers to an amazing after-party, there’s something for everyone.

For up-to-date information, please Like Medfield Foundation on Facebook or Follow Medfield Foundation on Twitter. We look forward to seeing you in December at the Angel Run!

The Course

The Angel Run course is a USATF certified* 5K. Once again this year we will be offering chip timing to ensure accurate results for all participants. The race begins and ends at Medfield High School.

*Due to continued road construction on the Philip Street bridge, the 2017 course has been modified and is not USATF certified this year. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. If the bridge construction is completed prior to the race, we will revert back to the original certified course. The modified route is posted below.

5K Training Plan

Jingle All the Way!

Enjoy this great kick-off to the holiday season that is sure to get you in the spirit. Over 1,300 enthusiastic runners, walkers, and volunteers – many with sleigh bells on their sneakers and holiday costumes – descend on the festively decorated race course while enjoying entertainment by carolers, and each other as they jingle their way to the finish line!

The Angel Run is open to the public with all ages encouraged to participate. Run, walk, push your stroller, bring your leashed dog, or volunteer…and feel free to costume up for this festive family event!

Upon finishing the route you will receive your race times and are invited to join us at the finish line for a Post Race Party.

Be a Volunteer!

In order to be race day ready we need your help. More than 1,300 runners will descend on the course at noon on December 3rd and there is much to do to be prepared. Please consider signing up for a small task many of which do not conflict with participating in the event.

History

In 2006 family and friends of Natasha Domeshek organized the Angel Run as an MFI Initiative in remembrance of their beloved third grader. Once the initial goals of the Angel Run were reached in 2012, the Medfield Foundation Board decided to continue the holiday tradition. Since then, the majority of the proceeds support town residents in need.

MFi camp fund launched

MFi Thermometer_1775

The Medfield Foundation launched a fund this summer to provide camp for needy kids in town, and passes to the swim pond.  Importantly, the camp allows their parents to work.  Please help send all the needy Medfield kids to camp!

Help send a child in need to camp this summer

Did you know there are many lower income families living in Medfield who can’t afford many of the basic necessities in life and who depend on local resources such as the Medfield Food Cupboard, Massachusetts Energy Assistance and even the funds raised through the Medfield Foundation Angel Run? This is an especially difficult time of year for some of these families as they try to figure out childcare for the summer? These families want to send their kids to camp but simply can’t.

That’s where you come in. The Medfield Foundation has been helping raise funds to help Medfield since 2001 with projects such as the original high school turf field, the Dale Street playground, the Angel Run, the Kingsbury Grist Mill and the Straw Hat Park. MFi is now launching a special fundraising effort to help send kids to camp and purchase family passes to Hinkley Pond for local families in need.

A small donation now can make a big difference in the lives of these kids. Our goal is 200 families donating $50 each. Your generosity and support are much appreciated.

Donate Now!

Thank you,

The Medfield Foundation

 

MFi camp/swim pond fund needs $

kids

The Medfield Foundation program to send Medfield children to camp or the swim pond this summer has had a good start, but needs donations.  The MFi is looking to raise $10,000 (200 donations of $50) – the MFi has $1,775 in hand – sponsored campers say thank you.

This is an especially difficult time of year for some local families who want to send their kids to camp but simply can’t.

A small donation now can make a big difference in the lives of these kids. Your generosity and support are much appreciated. Can we count on you to help?

Please donate Now!
