Attention Parents of Medfield School Children

Friday is “Where Your Angel Run Shirt to School Day” at all Medfield schools. Be sure to have your child show their Angel Run spirit by wearing their shirt to school and seeing which of their friends will be participating.


We are still in need of volunteers willing to help out for the event. Do you have family that are planning to watch instead of participate? Their assistance could be very helpful. Open positions are listed on our Sign-up Genius site. And even if you are participating, we are looking for Bakers to provide some treats for the after party. Use the Sign-up Genius site to register as a Baker or donate other party items.
National Anthem

Congratulations to Maria Neafus, 15, who will sing the National Anthem at approximately 12:25pm next to the starting line. Maria is a sophomore at Medfield High School and enjoys acting and singing.

Bib Tag Timing
Your time will be automatic as the clock will start when you cross the starting line and stop when you cross the finish line. No more worrying about jockeying for position.

We ask that the Sleigh Division line up first, followed by the Competitive Runners, then casual runners behind that group, followed by walkers and families with strollers and or dogs. Be sure to look for the flags indicating where to line up for the start.

What about the Weather?

The Angel Run is a rain or shine event. If the weather is a bit unpleasant, we’ll still be doing the event. So dress appropriately and put on a smile.

If you have any other questions or concerns, please email us at angelrun@medfieldfoundation.org.
See you Sunday!
