The New Balance Falmouth Road Race

The Matthew W. Houlihan Foundation, Inc. is proud to have been selected as one of the authorized charities for the 2015 New Balance Falmouth Road Race for the eighth year. In the past seven years Team Houli has raised over $200,000 for the Foundation. We are so very proud of our runners and family and friends who support this effort.

Because of that continued dedication of Matt's friends and family, contributions to the Matthew W. Houlihan Foundation, Inc. have grown a great deal in the last few years. The continued support of these generous donors has helped the Foundation to make a substantial impact in the form of scholarship dollars at Tabor Academy and Hamilton College, Matt's alma maters. The recipients of these awards share many of the outstanding qualities that enabled Matt to influence countless people's lives in many different ways, such as exceptional character, a positive attitude, exemplary citizenship, and strong academics. Since the Foundation's inception in 2001, we have raised over $500,000 through various endeavors, and have awarded almost $300,000 in scholarship support.

In the past couple of years, in response to the Board's desire to do something in the area of heart health, the Foundation has been able to expand its impact to the community at large by purchasing three defibrillators for the beaches in Matt's hometown of Falmouth, Massachusetts.

Please support us by making a donation to this year's Team Houli, and help us keep Matt's spirit alive by making a positive difference in the schools and communities to which he was so dedicated in life.
