Official charity teams list for the 52nd running in August is now available

FALMOUTH, Mass. – The ASICS Falmouth Road Race has announced its list of charity participants for its 52nd annual race taking place on Aug. 18, 2024. Runners can gain early access (or guaranteed entry) into the popular event by raising funds for a charity through the Numbers for Nonprofits program, which is presented in partnership with  Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund, who have been participating in the program for 22 years. This program has helped raise over $63.7 million since 2000, which includes a record-breaking $7.2 million raised at the 2023 event. Runners are invited to reach out to a charity team captain to learn about joining their team.

“We are honored to continue our partnership with the Falmouth Road Race and are helping to support more than 211 other local nonprofits through this beloved race,” said Jan Ross, assistant vice president of Running Programs for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund. “Our support of this event allows us to share the extraordinary work Dana-Farber is doing in cancer care and research with the community, and also highlights the progress other charities are making as well.”

In addition to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund, the ASICS Falmouth Road Race charity runners will be raising funds for 211 nonprofit organizations at the 2024 event, including:

Community Health Center of Cape Cod: The mission of Community Health Center is to improve the health of our community through the provision of equitable, patient-centered, high quality, compassionate health care to all, regardless of ability to pay. Community Health Center provides care to more than 25,000 individuals within a “complete medical home” model, where integrated health services are provided under one roof to assist patients in overcoming affordability, financial, linguistic, cultural, transportation and other barriers to care.

Citizens for Juvenile Justice: The only independent, non-profit, statewide organization working exclusively to improve the juvenile justice system in Massachusetts. They advocate, convene, conduct research and educate the public on important juvenile and youth justice issues. Their mission is to advocate for statewide systemic reform to achieve equitable youth justice.

Recovery Without Walls: A non-profit based in Falmouth and Portland, Maine that provides structure, safety, support and stability to women whose lives have been interrupted by substance use and related trauma. RWW is the last standing all women’s program providing holistic services for substance abuse disorder on Cape Cod.

Wings for Falmouth Families: A true homegrown, local, Falmouth non-profit operating solely on volunteers. Through donor gifts and fundraising initiatives WFFF is able to provide an immediate safety net of financial aid so that a family can focus on their number one priority – the parent or child who has just become ill or who is experiencing a tragic event.

“I’m so excited to be continuing our partnership with the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund to support the Number for Nonprofits program,” said Andrea Norris, program manager at Falmouth Road Race, Inc. “This program allows us to highlight so many amazing Massachusetts-based charities that do important work in our community. I look forward to seeing all the highly-motivated and passionate charity runners who will fundraise and run the race for what will be another fantastic fundraising event!”

“I happen to love running, or ‘moving forward,’ but running to help others is my jam,” said Pam Rickard, director of active engagement at Herren Project. “I’ve chosen to run for Herren Project for the past 10 years because they support, inspire and empower families who are affected by the disease of addiction. Almost 18 years sober myself, helping others through fundraising and connection brings me enormous joy. Our Team Herren Project with the Falmouth Road Race has grown significantly over the past years because we all look forward to it as a reunion for many, a meet-up for new folks, and simply a running celebration! We can grow so much good with the power of sport.”

Organizations seeking to be a part of the Numbers for Nonprofits program must be a Massachusetts-based 501(c)3 organization and must submit an application to be considered. The application window is open from Aug. 31 – Oct. 31 each year.
