2024 Fitzgerald Physical Therapy Associates
Melrose Run For Women
A unique way to celebrate Mother's Day, the Melrose Running Club invites you to participate in the the Fitzgerald Physical Therapy Associates Melrose Run For Women on Sunday, May 12th, 2024. This family event honoring mothers is a Melrose Mother's Day tradition drawing hundreds of female athletes. The festivities kick off with a series of kids races followed by the main event: a 3.5 mile run/walk which winds through the scenic and peaceful Swains Pond section of the city. The race finishes up with children handing out flowers, a bounty of baked goods and coffee, music, and awards. Awards are given to the top finishers, the first mother and grandmother to finish, and best mother/daughter team finishers. Awards are also given to top age group finishers. Proceeds for the race are donated to the Melrose Alliance Against Violence. MAAV is a domestic violence prevention and education organization in Melrose. Since the race's inception in 1998 the Melrose Running Club has donated over $313,000 to MAAV. This race is truly a celebration of women of all ages and abilities, you won’t want to miss it. Be sure to invite your mother, sisters, daughters, and friends!
