Please Support Team Cape Abilities In The 2018 New Balance/Falmouth Road Race!

Filed in Blog, Community Partners, Events, Jobs, Life Skills, Volunteers by on July 19, 2015

Why would 14 people spend their summer training separately to run
in the 7-mile long Falmouth Road Race, seek out their families and friends
to raise money and support for their efforts, and then unitedly donate
all the proceeds they gathered to support Cape Abilities?

Marie Blaney Buckner (above, left):  It’s easy.  It’s because they make a positive difference in the lives of so many people, and running for them is a very small way that I can help give back.

James Barnes (above, center): So that I can help create more jobs for Cape Abilities participants. I think meaningful work dramatically improves someone’s life, and we need more funds so we can do that.

Joslyn Bonfini (above, right): Because Cape Abilities is motivated to make a large impact on our small community. I’ll thrilled to run with this team.

THIS IS WHY TEAM CAPE ABILITIES RUNS!!

Marie, James and Joslyn are just three of the 14 special people who are giving of their time and energy to raise funds for Cape Abilities by running in the New Balance/Falmouth Road Race on Saturday August 19, 2018.    As members of Team Cape Abilities, their goal is to raise $29,000 to support the programs and services that Cape Abilities provides to hundreds of individuals with disabilities across Cape Cod.

BUT THEY CANNOT DO IT WITHOUT YOUR HELP!

When you make a donation to help Team Cape Abilities reach their goal, you are helping Cape Abilities provide the therapeutic, residential, social and life training supports that empower our participants to achieve meaningful and valued roles in the community.

No matter how much you give, you will help expand Cape Abilities services and provide enrichment activities throughout the year that truly change people’s lives.

For example:
Your gift of $100 will pay for a community outing like mini-golf, bowling, or a ferry ride to one of the islands.
Your gift of $250 will pay for horseback riding therapy for six people
Your gift of $500 will pay for Art Therapy for up to 15 people, Physical or Speech Therapy for up to seven people, or Music Therapy for up to ten people!

This year’s team of James Barnes, Vivian Haidas, Marie Blaney Buckner, Joslyn Bonfini, Larissa Haynes, Magda Moran, Leland Berman, George Grevelis, Megan Strangfeld, Jennifer Williams, John O’Connor, Bill O’Connor, and Eileen O’Connor are members of the Cape Abilities family – some are staff, volunteers, friends, family and participants.

But all have a common goal: to raise the necessary funds
that will help support Cape Abilities.

Vivian Haidas (above, left): I am an all-in member of the Cape Abilities entourage. I am a pretty long-time volunteer and I believe whole-heartedly in their mission.  I value their presence in our community and want to help them continue to do great work.

Larissa Haynes (above, center):  To me, Cape Abilities represents community, hard work and the belief that every person has value.  I’m raising money for them because my core beliefs match theirs. We all could use more community and belief in humanity in our world.

Leland Berman (above, right): Great organization, whose work you run into all over the Cape. It’s a team making a real and visible impact in making Cape Cod a better place for everyone.

THIS IS WHY TEAM CAPE ABILITIES RUNS!!
