Memorial Day Race Postponed

After much discussion, the best course of action is to postpone the Oak Bluffs Memorial Day 5k Road Race for a later date to be determined. Our number one priority at Hospice of Martha's Vineyard is for everyone to stay safe and healthy. We will post an update as soon as there is any additional information to share. 

Since this is such an uncertain time, we are offering runners who have already registered a refund on their registration fee or the opportunity to receive tax deductible credit by converting their fee to an outright donation to Hospice of Martha's Vineyard. If you fall into this category, we will be reaching out to you in the coming week. 

Did you know that the Oak Bluffs Memorial Day Road Race has been a benefit for Hospice of Martha's Vineyard for the last 27 years?

  • Starting this year, we are stepping up our fundraising game and hope that you will join us! Each race registrant will automatically create their own fundraising page upon registration. Fundraising is optional but highly encouraged. Hospice of Martha's Vineyard provides hospice and bereavement services at no charge to all who are facing serious illness, grief and death. We do not bill insurance or patients for any of our services. Every dollar that you raise will support these crucial services provided for the Island community and every dollar truly makes a difference.
  • When you register for the road race, you will have the chance to set your fundraising goal and customize your fundraising webpage. Fundraising goals automatically default to $100 but you are able to edit this amount to one you are comfortable with - a good rule of thumb is to set a manageable goal and then raise it higher once you've reached this initial goal amount. Fundraisers who raise $100 or more will achieve VIP race status and earn their race t-shirt. T-shirt quantities are limited, so becoming a fundraising VIP is a way to guarantee your t-shirt on race day!

***Please note that you will be able to edit your fundraising page at any time.***

Stay tuned for more exciting fundraising incentives to be delivered via email...raffles and prizes just to name a few...
