Volunteers play an important part in any road race. That’s been particularly true for the Run for Faith, a four-mile road race set in Plymouth, Massachusetts—the first Run for Faith took place right before Hurricane Irene. The Run for Faith recently announced the need for additional volunteers for this year’s third annual race, set for Sunday, August 11.
“There would not be a Run for Faith if it were not for our volunteers. Their love and affection for Mom carried us through the first race where we literally finished as Hurricane Katrina began,” said Matthew Romboldi, Run for Faith organizer and son of Marcy “Faith” Romboldi, in whose memory the race is held. Faith lost her battle to ovarian cancer in 2010.
Added Matthew,“Volunteers for this race either are family or like family. And in our family, there’s always room for more.”
Volunteers are needed to man registration tables, water stations and other day-of-race functions. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Matthew Romboldi at 508-400-0751 or email@example.com.
The third annual Run for Faith 4Miler, which is a gold member in the Bayside Runner Racing Series, will take place on Sunday, August 11 at 8:30 a.m. at historic Plimoth Plantation. Entry fee is $25 – which will once again go to scholarships for Plymouth high school students, the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, the Plymouth Public Library and other Plymouth charities and non-profits (Last year’s Run for Faith resulted in two $2,500 scholarships for graduating Plymouth North and Plymouth South high school students; The Run for Faith also contributed $5,000 to Dana Farber’s Yawkey Center for Cancer Care).
The Run for Faith’s four-mile race loop includes spectacular views of Cape Cod Bay, the Eel River and scenic horse farms. The course features rolling hills and unmatched history. Water stations are plentiful and the event is professionally timed by Spitler Racing Systems. Prizes will go to top finishers, male and female, and awards will be given to top finishers for various age groups, including a Stroller Division.
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.
