Falmouth Road Race

May Institute is proud to be a benefiting charity of the 2013 New Balance Falmouth Road Race’s Numbers for Non-Profits program!
 

Support our runners!

We are so very grateful to have so many runners this year. Each runner has pledged to raise $1,000 so they can help children and adults with autism, brain injury, and other special needs receive effective treatment so they may lead better lives.

By supporting one of our runners, you will help put books in the hands of young students learning to read, help children speak their first words through assistive communication, and give adults vocational training and the opportunity to participate in recreational activity.

Why I run: I would be honored to run for the May Institute for several reasons. Most importantly, I believe in their philosophy and their drive for seeing their students succeed.

Why I run: I would like to run the Falmouth Road Race because I believe strongly in the mission statement of the May Institute and the work we do for individuals with autism and other special needs. I have worked for the May for over five years and have come to know numerous individuals whose lives I have seen improve based on the work and dedication of the May Institute and their employees. Every day I witness the challenges the individuals I serve face and with their hard work often overcome. I would like to take this challenge to personally push myself and test myself as they do every day. Thank you all for your support.

Why I run: The students that I work with at the May Institute amaze me everyday as they learn and grow.

My seven students face obstacles every time they go out into the world and this is an opportunity for me to do something just for them.

All of my students have been a wonderful and inspirational part of my life and have influenced who I am today. I admire all of their personalities, perspectives on life and their humor. I believe running this race is a way to show how much I appreciate all of my students and their families and my co-workers (past and present) for all of their hard work and dedication.
