Franciscan Hospital for Children Benefit 5K

5th Annual New Balance Heartbreak Hill 5K to benefit Franciscan Hospital for Children

Saturday, June 9

Franciscan Hospital for ChildrenThe Midnight Riders, as part of our long-standing commitment to charitable action and involvement in our beloved New England and to support a friend of some of our very own family, are joining in the New Balance Heartbreak Hill 5K to benefit Franciscan Hospital for Children. We will have team members both walking and running, so there’s something for everyone.

Each year, more than 15,000 children receive care at the Hospital. Some of the kids suffered a spinal cord injury in a car accident, and need rehabilitation to learn how to walk and talk again. Others are born with chronic health conditions like cerebral palsy and attend day school on campus. Infants weighing less than 2 pounds who need mechanical ventilation to help them breathe are under the careful supervision of doctors and nurses while their little lungs grow. Teens with severe depression get help overcoming their trauma and moving on.

Some of the children have long term health issues and some are recovering from devastating injury. While some have made remarkable progress, there are others for whom life will never be the same.¬†One of our young friends, Adam Kopoyan, is alive and doing better every day thanks to FHC’s care.

When you support the Heartbreak Hill 5K, you’re not just helping us, you are helping the kids on their incredible journey to heal, learn, and grow.

2012 has already been one of the most successful charity seasons in The Midnight Riders’ history and we’re just getting started. Help us keep it going! Join and/or Donate today!

Meet The Coach

The annual Meet The Coach event has been announced for April 14 from 12:30-1:30pm. This is the same day as Revs vs DC United at home, so this event is timed to end just as tailgating is getting started. Meet head coach Jay Heaps, ask questions and get all the inside info from this exclusive supporters event. We really encourage everyone to make it out for this event, having it on a game day just makes it that much more convenient!

Parking will be in the usual game day parking lot (accessible by members with parking passes only) and the event will be held in the Putnam Club East. The entrance is by lot P1 next to the old Pro Shop.

Earn Your Stripes. 45 More Spots on the Red Bull Bus.

We have 45 seats open for the 4/28 bus trip to NYRB.

45 is the magic number where both us and The Rebellion aren’t losing money to make this trip (and puts us 128 total making the trip).

We now have pick up spots in Boston (The Banshee, T accessible), Gillette Stadium (leave your car in the supporters lot and be dropped back off after) and the Wallingford Park and Ride in Wallingford, Ct.

So do you part and spread the word and join us on an awesome trip down to New Jersey.

Road trips are where supporters are made.

Get on the bus!
