Run in the 2018 Angel Run, apprentice for the 2019 Angel Run, run the 2020 Angel Run

Home_Page_Angel_Run_800x600-500x300

Rose Colleran and Susan Weisenfeld (above) have co-chaired the Medfield Foundation Angel Run for many years, and today announced that they will do so for two more spectacular, family fun filled Angel Runs, this December 2 and in 2019.

Therefore, the Medfield Foundation is looking for someone interested in learning how to operate the Angel Run over the next fifteen months by apprenticing to these two pros, to learn the ropes, and to then take over running the Angel run to be held in early December 2020.  The Angel Run is Medfield premier family fun event, and raises monies for Medfield families in need.

Open farm day – 10/28

Borgstein Alpaca Farm Open Farm Day 10/28

I saw the Borgstein Alpaca Farm booth at Medfield Day, loved it, and said I would post about their open house.

I really like that we have an operating farm in town.  Plus pictures of alpacas on the Internet makes for a nice change from pictures of cats.  The Borgensteins have 17 of their goal of a 20 alpaca herd, per the count up screen.

Angel Run 2018 – Register Now

Greetings Angel Run Friends,

Join us for the 13th running (or walking) of the Angel Run on Sunday, December 2 at 12:30pm!

Registration for the MFi Angel Run is officially open. Registration is available online for $25.00 per person at MedfieldFoundation.org/angel-run and runs through October 28. Register by this date to receive the always popular commemorative Angel Run shirt. After October 28 you can still register online, however the price goes up to $30.00 per person and you will not receive a shirt.

Once again this year we will be offering bib tag timing to provide you the most accurate time possible and a special separate starting corral for competitive runners. You decide if you should belong to that group. Be sure to note this on your registration.

We’ve also got great news to share as well. With the completion of the Philips Street bridge, the Angel Run will be returning to our official 5K route. A map of the route is available when you register or on our website.

New this year – The Sleigh Division!

This year runners pushing strollers can register for the Sleigh Division. Just like Santa speeds through the night with his sleigh, we know that some of our runners speed through the streets of Medfield with their Sleighs (strollers)! Awards will be given for the top male and female runners pushing a sleigh and also for the best decorated sleigh.

 

Register Now!

 

We hope to see you there (with bells on!)

Cheers,

The MFi Angel Run Team

Yarn4Hope by MCSP

Anna Mae O’Shea Brooke has been organizing the Yarn4Hope effort on behalf of the Medfield Coalition for Suicide Prevention, to bring greater awareness to September being suicide prevention month.  This is her email –

========================================

Hi All-

 

I hope you drove through town this week and saw the #yarn4hope installation.  Here are some photos:

AF1QipPLy2Xcgptfo74HdkCyLa7j99I5x1764XXLZCVIHxikMNV44a1yoBCuvgf92lJCFA

 

I think that it is impactful while also being perfectly understated; a balance of beauty and hope. Each piece possesses a story or rather an intention from the person who created the pieces.  We had over 30 pieces made from students, teachers, school staff, parents, empty nesters and knitting circles from the Council on Aging and St. Edward; a true community effort!  Blake Middle School teacher, Diane Horvath, was the visionary and orchestrated all of this!

 

I hope that this installation brings awareness and compels people to either get educated to recognize the signs and for those who are suffering, to seek help…some may think this is naive, but we must stay stedfast in our desire to prevent more deaths by suicide.

 

Thanks all!

Anna Mae
