To our MASF Friends & Supporters:
In the fall of 2014 we embarked on an aggressive fundraising activity to raise the money necessary to build a new track in Marblehead. The goal was to complete that activity in time to begin construction during the summer of 2015 (track construction projects must be done during the summer months) so the track would be ready for the 2016 high school season. This one came down to the wire, but we are very pleased to announce that on July 1, 2015 we delivered a check to the Town of Marblehead in the amount of $563,700! This means the project will begin next week and we’ll have a new track by early September!
This is fantastic news and we thank all the people who stepped up and contributed to this effort. BUT our success comes with one caveat – in order to hit our goal, we did have to borrow $75,000 from a generous supporter. This means that while the project is moving forward, our fundraising must continue so we can quickly pay back that loan. So, as the shovels hit the dirt next week, we too will be back on the trail of donations. Please spread the word to your friends and ask if they are willing to chip in.
