Falmouth Road Race
Help Hospitality Homes raise money for participating in The 2021 ASICS Falmouth Road Race
The Falmouth Road Race was established in 1973 and has become one of the premier running events of the summer season. Each year the race draws an international field of Olympians, elite, and recreational runners out to enjoy the iconic 7-mile seaside course. The nonprofit Falmouth Road Race organization is committed to promoting health and fitness through community programs and philanthropic giving.
Bringing home & heart to healthcare in Boston 🏠🧡💛
Hospitality Homes’ unique “home away from home” model is simple and unique: we offer a place to stay to anyone traveling from outside the area to receive care at a Boston-area hospital. Normally, our network of approximately 150 volunteer host families open their homes to patients each year. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 crisis has created both an increase in demand for medical lodging as well as a decrease in the availability of volunteer homes. Despite this tremendous challenge, in 2020 our volunteer hosts across Greater Boston, along with our donated apartments, short-term rentals and partner hotels, provided 7,589 nights of accommodation to nearly 1,300 guests, saving them approximately $2.1 million.
Your donations support Hospitality Homes critical need to provide housing. With the prohibitively expensive costs of local hotels- averaging $260 per night- and the lack of sufficient hospital-sponsored housing, many patients struggle with what to do, balancing these and other out-of-pocket expenses with the already high cost of responding to a complex or chronic illness.
Thank you for your generosity!
