Neighbor Brigade, a non-profit organization that mobilizes local volunteers to help their neighbors during times of crisis, will hold its 3rd annual fundraising event Pam's Run on Sunday, October 18th, 2015.  The event will include a chip-timed 5K Run/Walk and a 10K Run at the Claypit Hill School, 40 Adams Lane, Wayland, MA. All proceeds will benefit Neighbor Brigade services and programs for neighbors in need across Eastern Massachusetts.  Pam's Run will also feature fun for the entire family at a community festival with live music, kids' activities, food trucks and photo booth.  Age-group awards and cash prizes for top finishers. Incentive prizes offered for top fundraisers (see for details)!  Thank you to our top level sponsors Circle Furniture and Joint Ventures Physical Therapy, Inc.

Pam's Run brings together more than 1,000 passionate runners, volunteers, spectators, donors and corporate sponsors who care about those in need in their communities.  Proceeds from Pam's run benefit Neighbor Brigade, the non-profit organization started by Founder Pam Manikas Washek who envisioned a caring community of "neighbors helping neighbors" during times of crisis. Pam's Run honors the memory of Pam and supports the movement she ignited – now celebrating its 5th Anniversary. Washek's sister Joanna Manikas and niece Jayme Nowland are co-chairing the planning committee with assistance from volunteers from within Neighbor Brigade's 29 chapters across eastern Massachusetts.
