The FLY (Financial Lift for Young Adults with Cancer) Foundation in partnership with BankFive was pleased to hold its 3rd Annual 5K Road Race & Walk on October 27th.
The FLY Foundation is a registered non-profit organization in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, providing financial support to young adults in Massachusetts and Rhode Island, aged 19-39, who have been diagnosed with cancer. The organization was founded by Bristol, RI residents Julia & Peter Saulino, following Julia’s lymphoma diagnosis at age twenty-nine. To date, The FLY Foundation has distributed 36 grants totaling $68,000 to local young adults undergoing cancer treatment.
The 5K began at BankFive, 79 North Main Street, Fall River, MA and finished at The Tap House Grill in Fall River, MA.
