Latham Centers Receives 16 Runner Spots in 2013 New Balance Falmouth Road Race


It’s official! Latham Centers will participate for the second consecutive year in the Falmouth Road Race, Numbers for Nonprofits Program.  As a selected charity beneficiary, Latham has received 16 runner fundraising spots (up from 10 in 2012) for the 41st New Balance Falmouth Road Race on Sunday, August 11, 2013. The New Balance Falmouth Road Race is a scenic 7-mile course from Woods Hole to Falmouth. In 2012, 10 runners raised a combined $10,000 for Latham on behalf of our children and adults with complex special needs.

Similar to 2012, Team Latham 2013 runners will receive coveted Road Race entry numbers from Latham in exchange for a $1,000 minimum fundraising threshold. More details will follow, but if you have an interest in running or know of someone who would like more information, please contact:

Gerry Desautels
Latham Centers
VP of Development & Community Outreach
774-353-9296 or
gdes@lathamcenters.org

The first step in the process is to file a letter of intent with Latham while agreeing to raise or be responsible for the $1,000 minimum requirement.  Upon acceptance, Latham will assist all Team Latham runners with a social media page to raise funds online. Latham will also cover the $150 racer registration fee under the Numbers for Nonprofits program.
