Get Ready.  Get Set.  GO” TO THE MS 5K FESTIVAL!
Sunday, October 21

Karen’s event recap: Though Mother Nature was very unkind yesterday causing the event to shut down early  the MS 5K Festival was greatly successful in many ways😃 Those who hung in there despite the extreme winds and “brrrr”…cold temperatures had great fun. I am so happy and overwhelmingly proud to announce that this is Run For Research’s biggest fundraiser event yet. THANK YOU to our incredible sponsors, the local, regional and national companies who exhibited and or supported our mission, the hundreds of 5K, and mummy mile stroll participants, our incredible RFR volunteers, the general public of individuals and families, and to my dear family members and friends who came out to support & enjoy all of the day’s festivities. Together, as a community united, we surpassed the $65,000 event goal of which 100% of the net proceeds are being donated to MS research and patient support. I will be delivering the big donation check right into the hands of the brilliant & dedicated researcher’s at the Ann Romney Center For Neurologic Diseases at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. CONGRATULATIONS to all of the 5K individual WINNER’S! You can view the results here at: Team WINNER’S:  Corporate- Performers for a Purpose won for both largest participating team and top fundraiser,  Family/Friends- Team Mucky Mucks won for both largest participating team and top fundraiser.  Corporate- Top team member fund raiser was Mitch Toren of the Trip Guy team, Family/Friends- Top team member fund raiser was Lawerence Umansky of team Umansky.

My deepest gratitude to everyone from everywhere who joined RFR in our tireless efforts to raise vital funding that backs the ongoing research necessary to discover the answers that will finally determine the cause and cure for Multiple Slcerosis. The outcome of this event is what kindness, understanding and humanitarianism is all about. BRAVO!! Once again from the bottom of my heart I thank you. Karen Lynd-Founder

The same heart and soul and deliberation we voluntarily put into orchestrating our MS research fundraiser events has been put into creating this innovative healing framework for MS patients to seek solace and companionship.  It is a special place participants will look forward to going to that benefits them firsthand. The carefully selected line-up of therapeutic resources and recreational activities encourages patients to experience positive connections within themselves and to form bonds with others.  Round trip transportation will be provided for those in need.  Pre-registration is required as space is limited.  $10 donation/meeting
