foleys backstreet grille flyerThe Mass Hopsital School, located in Canton MA, is a health care facility that provides care to children and young adults who have severe and/or multiple disabilities.  It is a wonderful place that provides medical and rehabilitative care so that its patients can each their full potential.  Affiliated with the Department of Public Health, it is a non-profit always in need of more funds for its budget.

Foley's hosts an annual Golf Tournament to benefit the school, but this year has added in a 5K Road Race.  The race will start and finish on the grounds of the Mass Hospital School, with a post-race party to follow.

The First Annual 5K to Benefit the Mass Hospital School will be held on April 21, 2013 at 12:00 pm at 3 Randolph St., Canton MA.  

The first 500 people to enter will get a free T-shirt. Cost of registration is $20.00 prior to the race and $25.00 on race day.  Registration can be done online at or  For more information call Foley's at 781-297-0100.

Foley's Backstreet Grille is a great local restaurant - one of my favorites with some of the best seafood around. They do a lot to give back to the community, not only by running events like this but also through their donations to other local events to support the schools, performing arts and more.  They really know how to pay it forward. Canton is that kind of community.

My husband is already registered to run.  I'll be there watching!
