Join Team Next Step!

Punxsutawney Phil says winter is ending early but unfortunately it’s still here but that doesn’t mean it’s too early to make summer plans. If you’re a runner, thinking about becoming a runner or maybe just curious about Cape Cod then we have some exciting news for you, Next Step was given a limited amount of bib numbers for this year’s New Balance Falmouth Road Race!

The Falmouth Road Race weekend is one of our favorites. Falmouth is full of fun activities, great restaurants, and beautiful beaches. On Saturday we’ll be waiting to greet our runners at the Falmouth Road Race expo where they can pick up their bib numbers. At the expo you can also see presentations from previous runners and also purchase Falmouth Road Race memorabilia.

The night before the race, we love spending time with our runners and their families to really make everyone feel like they’re part of the Next Step family. On race day you can spot us on the side of the road with our team shirts and our duck signs cheering you on along the course. Afterwards, there’s a celebration barbecue to thank all of the Team Next Step runners for their support in helping us continue our mission of providing community, music, and mentorship programming for teens and young adults living with cancer, HIV, and rare genetic disorders.

If you are at all nervous about preparing for the race we’ve got you covered! Coach Keri is available to answer any questions and help you set up a training schedule. We have a $1,000 minimum fundraising goal for all of our runners.
