2016 New Balance Falmouth Road Race

A team of 8 dedicated individuals ran the picturesque 2016 New Balance Falmouth Road Race on August 21st in support of NECHV’s mission to serve Veterans at risk of or experiencing homelessness. By running Falmouth, Team NECHV promoted awareness of the challenges Veterans face upon returning to civilian life, raised funds critical to help support the programs and services offered by the Center, and showed Veterans that they have a community that stands behind them as they take strides to sustainable independent living. We are so proud of our team and grateful for their effort and commitment!

Thank you to all who supported NECHV team members. Your encouragement and generosity is greatly appreciated.
