On Sunday, August 20, more than 11,000 participants gathered in Woods Hole to run the 45th annual New Balance Falmouth Road Race, including 37 teammates who ran to benefit Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH), Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital (BWFH), and The Gillian Reny Stepping Strong Center for Trauma Innovation at BWH.
To date, the team has raised more than $35,000 to transform the future of medicine for patients and families here in Boston and around the world.
“I’m proud to run for [Stepping Strong]. I was a patient myself at Brigham and Women’s Hospital with a traumatic injury. This is my small way of giving back to one of the greatest hospitals by running for one of the best charities I’ve ever seen.” —Steve Teague
“I worked for Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital and there is something really special about the community there. It’s like a family, between staff and patients. This was a great reason to run and a nice way to celebrate everyone who works there.” —Ericka Hansen
“This is the second run I’ve done for Brigham and Women’s Hospital, both in the memory of my uncle Lenny. It’s kind of nostalgic being in Falmouth, because we had many family vacations right here, all thanks to him. We had 14 more years with him thanks to Brigham. And that’s why I run.” —David Baker
After the race, runners and their guests enjoyed a barbeque at the Flying Bridge restaurant in Falmouth. Check out the Running Program Facebook page to view photos.
