The 2018 Falmouth Road Race team was over 50 strong this year resulting in over $55k raised to support the mission and programs of Herren Project. Members of the team included staff, recovery partners, individuals and families all working together and running with the goal to make a difference in just one person’s, one family’s journey.
One of the many highlights included Herren Project Runs Director, Pam Rickard, being featured in the Falmouth Road Race Magazine. An inspiration to many, Pam shared her recovery journey focusing on the theme of resilience. The feature story took readers back three months ago almost to the day, when Pam had achieved a new personal time record running the Cleveland Marathon and just three days later was stricken with viral meningitis. Over 600 miles from home and restricted to her hospital bed for over a week, Pam was too weak to walk or stand. Her comeback took weeks as she regained her strength to start to walk again, covering the block on which she lived and eventually running the miles of which, she was accustomed to. Falmouth was her first big race back and in the article, she shares “You can’t fix everything, but you can push back the darkness by adding light.” Read more about Pam’s journey to Run Falmouth…
From the start of the weekend to finishing the race along the Cape Cod coast, there were so many highlights, personal goals reached, impactful moments and stories shared. A truly amazing weekend for the entire Herren Project team.
