We’re excited to be sponsors of the Annual West Island 5k & Fairhaven Father’s Day Road Race!
Be sure to stop by our tent at both events to grab post race refreshments, Care Free goodie bags, and balloons. We’ve been long-time supporters of both races as they both donate proceeds to worthy groups, organizations, and initiatives within our community. Here are quick details for each one:

Celebrating 45 years, this is one of the BEST races in the SouthCoast!! The post race food is amazing – from the traditional fruit and water to ice cream, pizza, donuts (runners earn a treat right?!) and more!! Thousands of runners of all ages participate in this race every year. Beginners enjoy the 5k and experienced runners enjoy the challenge of a 10k. Awards are given to the top father/daughter and father/son teams, top female/male Fairhaven residents, as well as top 3 males/females from 10 age categories!
