Flutie Foundation 5K-Great People- Great Day- Great Cause

by altardy on October 5, 2010

What a truly great race and time the Flutie 5k Road race in Natick, Ma. on October 3rd was. There are many people working hard to make this race such a success. Two of these people are pictured under the 100.7 tent handing out awards after the race. Doug Flutie you recognize. His schedule during the year, I have learned, makes him a man who is always on the go. But even with his success as a football quarterback for many years, and now a successful commentator on television, he is truly a down to earth, humble, and a great to know kind of guy.

I have watched him at the end of race day as he walks over to each and every volunteer he can find, shakes their hands and thanks them for helping with the race.
Lisa, Doug’s national coordinator, works tirelessly all year for the Flutie Foundation and her efforts putting on this race show in the way the entire day flows from beginning to end. The atmosphere is a light hearted one and great things are accomplished to help people with Autism.
As you can see there are bounce houses for the kids, music fills the air, volunteers are everywhere to help everyone, and mother nature always seems to come through in a good way.
There are 3 more stories about the day after this one because there is so many great things to experience here.
If you’ve run this race before I know I’ll see you next year. If you haven’t–YOU NEED TO BE THERE NEXT YEAR. PUT THIS ON YOUR RACE CALENDER
