The sixth annual Run for Faith recently announced it is looking for volunteers to work registration tables, water stations and other day-of-race functions. The 4.58-mile race will take place at 8:30 am on Sunday, August 14 from Plimoth Plantation.
“Our volunteers are the foundation of any run, but even more so with the Run for Faith. That dates back to the first year when the Run for Faith took place just before Hurricane Irene hit,” said Matt Romboldi, one of the founders of the race run in memory of his mother, Faith “Marcy” Romboldi, who succumbed to ovarian cancer in 2010.
Adds Romboldi, “For people who want to volunteer, we can’t guarantee the weather. We can guarantee that you can be part of a special effort to raise money for scholarships for local high school students and other local charities as well as the Dana Farber’s Yawkey Center for Cancer Care where my mother received treatment. You also might meet a celebrity or two. Joey McIntyre of the New Kids on the Block ran in last year’s and Boston Marathon Legend Bill Rodgers, who is also a cancer survivor, will be acting as grand marshal.”
In its six year history, the Run for Faith has raised more than $100,000 for the aforementioned charities. With the 6th annual Run for Faith set for Sunday, August 14, organizers are counting on year six this 4.58-mile race to break previous fundraising efforts and volunteers are a significant part of that endeavor.
Those interested in volunteering can contact Matt Romboldi at firstname.lastname@example.org.
