The 3rd annual Massachusetts Walk-Run-N-Roll took place on Saturday, October 13th at Endicott Park in Danvers, Massachusetts. It was a crisp, wet morning, but that didn’t stop the near 100 people who attended from walking, running, and rolling their way around the park to raise awareness for rare neuroimmune disorders.
U.S. Women’s National Hockey Team Captain and three-time Olympic medalist, Meghan Duggan, was the featured speaker this year. Meghan talked about her involvement after recently meeting four-year-old Noah Holt, who was diagnosed with AFM when he was six-months-old. Noah’s parents, Elisa and Mitch, are the event organizers.
After the talking, walking, running, and rolling, Meghan posed for pictures and let the kids wear her medals. A DJ kept everyone moving and from getting too cold. And Texas Roadhouse provided some much-needed comfort food.
Thank you to the Holts, all the volunteers who braved the weather to set up tables and tents, Meghan Duggan, our sponsors, and our community.
