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!!
Save the Date for the Melrose Run for Women!
Hit the road this Mother’s Day for the 22nd Annual Melrose Run for Women! This year’s race will be held on Sunday, May 12 beginning at Pine Banks Park. The 3.5-mile road race begins at 9 am.
This family-friendly event honoring mothers and children has become a Melrose Mother’s Day tradition, drawing over 1000 women. The festivities kick off with a series of kids’ races followed by the main event: a 3.5-mile run/walk which winds through the scenic and peaceful Swains Pond section of the city. Many women walk and run the course accompanied by their children. The race finishes up with children handing out flowers, music, and awards, and refreshments will be available after the race.
Online registration ($25) is open until Wednesday, May 8 at northshoretiming.com.
