4 Wilmington Residents To Run Falmouth Road Race

WILMINGTON, MA — On August 20, four Wilmington residents – Gina Bolognese, Michelle Forester, Catherine Parrella, and Jennifer Silveria — will run the 45th annual New Balance Falmouth Road Race to help conquer cancer as a member of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s team.

Along with more than 300 Dana-Farber teammates from New England and beyond, they will cover the seven-mile race course with a goal to raise more than $850,000 in 2017. Proceeds from the event will benefit adult and pediatric patient care and cancer research at Dana-Farber. In 2017, the Dana-Farber team celebrates its 15th year of participation in the race’s Numbers for Nonprofits charity program.

Each Dana-Farber team member commits to raise or contribute at least $1,500 to the cause. The event has raised nearly $5 million since its inception. To learn more about running for Dana-Farber or to support a runner, please visit http://www.rundanafarber.org/Falmouth.
