Mother’s Day 2017 was cold, windy and rainy, but the 20th Annual Melrose Run for Women was a great success! Liz Tassinari from the Melrose Running Club recently presented MAAV with a check for $12,000, proceeds from this year’s race. Over the course of 20 years, the MRC has donated a tremendous $212,000 to MAAV. They are true partners in prevention and help us make a difference every day. A huge thanks to Liz and everyone in the club, and to everyone who braved the weather and came out to run! Thanks so much for 20 years of support for the Melrose Alliance Against Violence!!
Melrose Run for Women Raises Valuable Funds for MAAV
A little rain didn’t dampen the spirits of those who participated in the 22nd Annual Melrose Run for Women! This beloved Mother’s Day tradition took place on May 12 and was organized by the Melrose Running Club.
On June 25, MAAV was thrilled and honored to be presented with a check for $18,000, proceeds raised from the race. This year’s donation will fund educational programs on healthy relationships at the middle and high school levels, and our weekly support group for victims and survivors of domestic violence.
We’d like to thank Race Director Liz Tassinari and her terrific team for their dedication and hard work, and the many local businesses that served as sponsors. Thanks to the support of the Melrose Running Club, we will continue our work to make Melrose a stronger, safer community.
