The May Memorial Challenge races toward $60,000


The 27th annual Memorial Road Race will be held virtually this year over Memorial Day weekend, with the goal of raising $60,000 in support of Hospice and Palliative Care of Martha’s Vineyard (HPCMV) by the end of this month. As a result of road race sponsors and early contributors, $10,000 has been raised so far. 

Registrants are invited to dedicate their run in memory of a loved one. On May 30 at 8 pm, each loved one’s name will be included in a memorial luminary ceremony. The ceremony will be viewable on the Hospice’s website, social media, and on YouTube. 

Registration for the race is $25, and comes with a T shirt, personal fundraising page, and a virtual leaderboard for all registrants. You can register today at If you don’t want to run, donations can be made at with the designation “May Memorial Challenge.” Donors can provide the name of their loved one and be included in the ceremony. All funds raised will go toward supporting HPCMV.
