2nd Annual Footprints 5K Run/Walk @ Pine Banks Park
Jun 5 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am

Please join the Melrose Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition in our 2nd Annual Footprints 5K Run/Walk on Sunday, June 5th 9:00am at Pine Banks Park in Melrose, MA. This will be the first race in a three-part regional series aiming to raise awareness about substance use disorder (SUD), promote support for recovery, and acknowledge our local police, fire, EMT’s, Melrose-Wakefield Hospital staff, and any first responder or community member who works hard to fight SUD and overdoses every day.

The disease of addiction affects virtually every person in some way, directly or indirectly; no person, no family is immune. It is a disease that does not discriminate and affects people of all race, gender, age, and socioeconomic status. The MA Department of Public Health estimates that there were over 1,100 overdose deaths in the state in 2015. Melrose Ambulance, Fire and Police regularly respond to overdoses and sadly we have lost many residents to opioid overdoses, especially in recent months.

All proceeds raised will benefit the Melrose Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition in order to continue and enhance prevention efforts in the schools and our community implemented over the last twelve years!

To register please visit: www.b4solutions.info/footprints-series. T-shirts guaranteed for all participants who pre-register! Race number pickup will be held at Melrose Family Chiropractic and Sports Injury Center at 653 Main St. Melrose on Saturday, June 4th from 11am-2 pm.

After twenty years, the City of Melrose re-established the Pedestrian and Bicycle Advisory Committee.

The Committee has been working throughout Melrose to improve conditions for pedestrians and bicyclists in the City and promote walking and bicycling as a means of transportation.

The Committee seeks community-at-large input and participation.

The Committee has been charged with the following goals and activities:

  • Enhance Melrose’s reputation as a prime commuter city;
  • Establish Melrose as a Walk Friendly community;
  • Organize and participate in public events such as bike rodeos;
  • Support Safe Routes to School initiatives such as walk to school days;
  • Search for pedestrian and bicycle grant opportunities;
  • Provide City departments with walkability & bikeability tools and resources;
  • Create materials to encourage walking and bicycling in the city

The Pedestrian and Bicycle Committee is made up of residents, City staff from the Health Department, the Planning and Community Development Office, the Police Department, and the Department of Public Works, and is in partnership with Mass in Motion-Melrose/Wakefield and the Melrose Energy Commission.
