08/08/2014



The Run for Faith recently announced the availability of sponsorship opportunities for new corporate sponsors for the fourth-year event,

Online PR News – 08-August-2014 – PLYMOUTH, MA – – which will take place on Sunday, August 24 at 8:30am at historic Plimouth Plantation.

The Run for Faith offers several layers of sponsorship opportunities, which includes: Hummingbird Sponsorship ($2500); Song Sparrow Sponsorship ($1000); Red Robin Sponsorship ($500); and the Chickadee Sponsorship ($250). Each sponsorship contains different levels of exposure for businesses; the greater the sponsorship amount, the greater exposure for your company.

“Businesses in the community have really responded to the Run for Faith in our four years. Our family has been part of the Plymouth business community and many fellow business owners knew my mother and wanted to help,” said Matthew Romboldi, Run for Faith organizer and son of Faith Marcia “Marcy” Romboldi, in whose memory the race is held. Faith lost her battle to ovarian cancer in 2010.

Adds Romboldi, “More and more sponsors have come on board because the money we have raised has gone to several very worthy causes, including scholarships for Plymouth high school students and the Yawkey Center for Cancer Care and ovarian cancer research.”

In its brief history, the Run for Faith has donated more than $15,000 to the Dana Farber’s Yawkey Center for Cancer Care, $15,000 in scholarships to graduating Plymouth North and Plymouth South high school students, and $6,000 to the Plymouth Public Library. With the 4th annual Run for Faith set for Sunday, August 24, organizers are counting on year four of this four-mile race to break previous fundraising efforts and new sponsors are a significant part of that endeavor.

Those interested in being a sponsor can contact Matt Romboldi at 508-400-0751 or email info@runforfaithplymouth.org.

The four-mile Run for Faith race loop captures spectacular views of Cape Cod Bay, the Eel River and scenic horse farms. The course features rolling hills and unmatched history.  Water stations are plentiful and the event is professionally timed by Spitler Racing Systems. There is also a Stroller Division, so runners can run with their young children.

The Run for Faith is a gold member in the Bayside Runner Racing Series. The entry fee is $25 – which will once again go to scholarships for Plymouth high school students, the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, the Plymouth Public Library and other Plymouth charities and non-profits. Runners can register at www.runforfaithplymouth.org.
Prizes will go to top finishers, male and female, and awards will be given to top finishers for various age groups. Post-race "light refreshments" will include bananas, oranges, bagels, muffins and scones.  To amuse younger family members, a jumpy house will be available. A number of vendors will be on hand to sell their wares before and after the race.

The Run for Faith is organized by Run for Faith, Inc., which is 501(c)(3) non-profit organization created to commemorate the special life of Faith “Marcy” Romboldi who gave so much of herself to both individuals and the community.

Faith, or “Marcy” as she was known by her friends and family, was a teacher, member of the Red Hat's Society, Sweet Adeline's, and Daughters of the American Revolution. She was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2008. Marcy’s ability to fight this vicious disease with incessant might and unsurpassed grace will never be forgotten and surely serves as inspiration to those who were close. Mostly, Marcy will be remembered for her acts of kindness, generosity and thoughtfulness. Many will remember her for her two best accessories- a lovely hat and a radiant smile!
