Like most things in 2020, this year’s New Balance Road Race had a slightly different feel to it, but there was one constant from past events: our Rockstar Team JAF Athletes!
Originally set for August 16, 2020, in Falmouth, MA, the 48th running of the race became a worldwide virtual event due to the COVID-19 pandemic, allowing participants from all over to run/walk in their own neighborhood any time between August 15 and August 29.
We are so proud of our 28 athletes who participated in the virtual event all over the country, from Massachusetts and New Hampshire to Florida and Georgia! Though they were not able to run the traditional late-summer Cape Cod classic this year, our athletes did spend months training and fundraising throughout the spring and summer. Because of their hard work, we’re thrilled to report that the team’s collective 2020 Falmouth Road Race efforts have raised over $34,000, which will allow JAF to provide financial assistance to more than 50 cancer patients and their family members!
To our incredible runners: please know that there is nothing more selfless in life than sacrificing time, money, and sweat for a greater purpose, and we can’t thank you enough for everything you have done to represent our mission over the past few months.
