Going the Distance, Sharing the Rewards

When you think of August you think of the New Balance Falmouth Road Race. This epic 7-mile adventure takes us from Woods Hole to Falmouth. Last week I wrote about Ruthe Lew, Jen Berry and Pam Amaral who are getting coaching support and working hard for a distance they have never covered or in Pam’s case getting help to cover again.

This week I want to highlight two fundraising women for Cape Cod MOVES! They also each have a USATF approved coach from Cape Cod MOVES! Jessica will be splitting her donations with Calmer Choice and Laurie with the 300 Committee. These are both amazing 501(c)(3)s. That said, we have worked with so many of the nonprofits that work with the Falmouth Road Race.

Here is the complete list!  https://falmouthroadrace.com/numbers-for-nonprofits/

Laurie GrandmontLaurie Grandmont:

Hi there!

My name is Laurie Grandmont and as you can see from my pink face and clothing that I am passionate about finding a cure for ALL forms of cancer.

My other passion is running and volunteering with Cape Cod MOVES, Inc. My goal is to “pay it forward” to individuals who are struggling with a chronic illness, learning difficulties, or wanting to live life to the fullest, so by running this year’s Falmouth Road Race with your help, is my way of giving back to them.

Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.

Again, thank you for your support!
