H E L L O R E N E G A D E S !
On Sunday, we heard over and over again from runners and guests that this was the best Renegade Run ever, and that there was an incredible positive vibe in the air all day long. Thank you for that feedback, we couldn’t agree more, the day was just perfect! Maybe it was the amazing weather at scenic Wompatuck, or the dynamic First Class Band with Concetta pumping out some killer tunes. Maybe it was the delicious treats from our Food Trucks or that cold brew from the Kappy’s Beer Tent. Perhaps it was the laughter of kids on the Mini Renegade and the inflatables, or the pride of the families and teams coming together to support a cure for type 1 diabetes – or it could have been the excitement from our over 1,000 runners who crossed the finish line proud to put that awesome medal around their necks. We are guessing it’s all of those elements that added to the positive vibe. Thank you for being part of the story and the success of the day.
We had a great time designing the course for our Renegades and you crushed it! We worked hard to bring you 3 new challenges, the Tire Roll, Superman Wall and the Rock Wall Combo – you didn’t disappoint, challenging yourself to trounce them and the 24 other obstacles we threw at you. The Renegade Hoist, Monkey Bars, Rings, the terrain, Prospect Hill, the Cargo Climb and more! We were impressed with your determination to conquer them all.
The overwhelmingly positive feedback is certainly a wonderful recognition for the months of work and planning behind it. But truth be told, that praise would not be earned without our volunteers, sponsors, and supporters, for helping to bring our mission to a new level. Without them the success of Renegade Run would not have been possible.
Our goal as always is to raise awareness and funds toward a cure for type 1 diabetes. We are very pleased to make a donation to the Faustman Lab at MGH as they continue their extraordinary research that holds such promise. Because of you and your fellow Renegades, the success of the day brings more attention to our cause. Please continue to stay informed and help spread the word of the extraordinary work being done by Denise Faustman, MD, PhD, Director of the Immunobiology Laboratory. Visit their website Faustman Lab
