Run For Fun!

Every year as we shake the doldrums of Winter, we look forward to the warmer weather and the start of our outdoor events. In particular, the start of FMP’s summer coincides with two amazing running and walking events, the Bourque Family Foundation 7.7K and the 1st Lt. Derek Hines Soldiers Assistance Fund Flag Day 5K.

Road races area among FMP’s favorite as you get to see the local communities coming together supporting great causes and challenging themselves for the betterment of others. We are just under a month away and can’t wait for these special events. See below for more information about each of the upcoming events and we hope that you will join us!
