The Run for Faith is organized by Run for Faith, Inc., which is 501(c)(3) non-profit organization created to commemorate the special life of Faith “Marcy” Romboldi who gave so much of herself to both individuals and the community.
Money raised from this Run/Walk will benefit the Plymouth Public Library, Children’s Department, Plymouth Elementary Schools, and music scholarship programs. Proceeds will also be contributed to awareness and prevention programs for ovarian cancer..
Faith, or “Marcy” as she was known by her friends and family, was a teacher, member of the Red Hat’s Society, Sweet Adeline’s, and Daughters of the American Revolution. She was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2008. Marcy’s ability to fight this vicious disease with incessant might and unsurpassed grace will never be forgotten and surely serves as inspiration to those who were close. Mostly, Marcy will be remembered for her acts of kindness, generosity and thoughtfulness. Many will remember her for her two best accessories- a lovely hat and a radiant smile!
Among the champions of the race committee are Marcy’s husband Russell Romboldi, son Matthew Romboldi and wife Nicole Romboldi, daughter Lisa O’Hanley, and many close friends.
