A team of runners from The Arc of the South Shore, a family-oriented, community-based nonprofit providing information, referrals and community programs for individuals with disabilities, raised $12,592 at this year’s Asics Falmouth Road Race, exceeding its goal by more than $2,500.
A team of five runners, including family members whose children have used Arc services, Special Olympics volunteer coaches and the organization’s Chief Financial Officer Ben Schineller, participated in this year’s annual event, raising funds to benefit the agency and the people it serves.
The Falmouth Road Race was established in 1973 and has become one of the premier running events of the summer season. The race draws an international field of Olympians, elite and recreational runners out to enjoy the iconic seven-mile seaside course. The nonprofit Falmouth Road Race organization is committed to promoting health and fitness through community programs and philanthropic giving.
“We’re proud of this fine team of runners and their participation in this important fundraiser,” said Abigail Parrilla, executive director of the Arc of the South Shore. “And we applaud Falmouth Road Race, Inc. for its devotion to the many programs that mean so much to so many people.”
