Postponing to 2021!

Thank you to everyone that supported last year’s Run for Amy, it was a wonderful day filled with warm smiles and a strong sense of community.  We are grateful for the support from all of you – in total we raised $73,000, of which $50,000 went to Dana Farber for cancer research, $20,000 to Appleton Farms / Trustees for land preservation, and $3,000 to support COVID relief funds over the past few months (Acord Food Pantry, Feed the Frontlines on the North Shore and Boston Medical Center).  The funds raised for the COVID donations primarily came from you all continuing to purchase Run for Amy gear over the winter.  We are humbled by your generosity, thank you.

Sadly, we have decided to cancel this year’s race.  We had hoped to be able to gather everyone for another special day, but unfortunately it doesn’t seem like it would be responsible or feasible to gather a large group together given the uncertain trajectory of the pandemic.  We will miss you.  Please mark your calendars for our new date, September 25, 2021!  Same place, same format, it can’t come soon enough!   In the interim, we would welcome your continued support for our charitable efforts, which we will steer this year towards pandemic relief.  Donations can be made on our website, or via venmo to @runforamy or via paypal to   All donations are tax deductible.

Thanks to all of you for your continued support of the Run for Amy, we look forward to seeing you next September.
