Will you join us in honoring our bravest? You are making a difference by teaming up with us.
The main beneficiary of our race is the Fisher House of Boston Foundation. They recognize not only the special sacrifices made by our men and women who serve in uniform, but also their loved ones. The Fisher House Boston is a home away from home where our military families can stay while a loved one is receiving in-house treatment at one of our medical centers. Any veteran or military personnel, wartime or peacetime, is eligible to have a family member stay at a Fisher House. These homes are built on the grounds of major military and VA medical centers.
It is a privilege and honor to give our best effort for our 5th year for such a great cause! Will you join us in making a difference in Veterans lives who are in Massachusetts?
A portion of the proceeds will also go to our Lodge's "Oil for Vets" Fund which provides heat for our Veterans & their families in Massachusetts.
We will have local businesses, kids fun, food, music, a photo booth and so much more @ this years race.
Put your patriotic pants on and see you September 30th!
There is a motto that the Elks follow; "So Long as there are veterans, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks will never forget them"!
