Walpole Community Runs for League School During Falmouth Road Race
The 51st running of the Falmouth Road Race, scheduled for Sunday, Aug. 20, will feature some of the top runners in the world for the popular 7-mile event along Falmouth’s coastline. Once again, that group of runners includes League School of Greater Boston’s team.
A total of 15 runners from Walpole joined the school’s team for this year’s race, including League School employees, Walpole High School student athletes, and more. In total, Walpole runners raised more than $17,500 to date for the school as part of the team.
Local team members include: League School Director of Development Tim McCabe and son Patrick, brother and sister Caroline and Cole Chase, mother and daughter Ann and Reilly Walsh, League School Marketing Manager Matthew Reid, Drew Cantrell, Laura Hearn, Jaime Hauge, Sean Cusack, Robyn MacNeil, Rich Carlo, Ila Zollo, and Matt Mourad.
The League School, located along Route 1 in Walpole, has had a Falmouth Road Race team for many years. This year’s team features a total of 20 runners, and in total exceeded its goal by raising more than $28,000 – with that number expected to climb even after the race. All proceeds raised from this year’s race will go directly to supporting the school and its work educating students with autism.
“League’s Falmouth Road Race team comes together every year to raise funds and awareness for the school, and this year we are thrilled with how successful our team was,” said team captain Tim McCabe. “Our team’s slogan is, ‘It Takes a Great Team to Make a Great League,’ and by exceeding our fundraising goal this year we will help the school to continue its very important mission of educating and empowering our students to become the best they can be. It means a lot in particular that so many local runners from Walpole, including students in the Walpole Public Schools, came together and supported our cause.”
The school takes part in the Falmouth Road Race’s Numbers for Nonprofits charity team program, which this year features more than 200 teams. Since 2000, the Falmouth Road Race has helped charity partners raise over $56.5 million and bring awareness to their various causes.
