A New Twist: The Bachelor vs. Survivor

This year we are launching an exciting face-off between two of reality TV’S biggest shows, Survivor and The Bachelor! Former runner-up Chris Lambton from Season 6 of The Bachelorette will head up The Bachelor squad, while three-time Survivor contestant Jonathan Penner leads the Survivor side. Runners will choose which “side” to support on their registration form  and their fundraising totals will be added to the corresponding side. Participants will receive swag, including T-shirts, based on the side they choose. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for special messages from Jonathan and Chris and to see which fandom claims victory on race day!

Jonathan Penner & Stacy Title

CCALS begin working with Stacy Title and Jonathan Penner in 2018 after Stacy’s ALS diagnosis. Throughout her battle CCALS provided Stacy, Jonathan and their family guidance and support as they navigated their ALS journey. Stacy lost her battle to ALS on January 11, 2021. Stacy was a dear friend to CCALS, an extraordinary mother, life partner, and friend. We celebrate her amazing work in film, screenwriting, and producing.

Marjorie & Chris Lambton

Chris Lambton reached out to CCALS in 2007 when his mother, Marjorie, was diagnosed with Multiple System Atrophy (MSA), a disease associated with the degeneration of nerve cells in specific areas of the brain. CCALS worked with the Lambton family during Marjorie’s battle with MSA.  Marjorie lost her battle in 2008 and since then Chris has continued to support CCALS’ work.

Falmouth Road Race

All CCALS runners will be able to run the 2021 Falmouth Road Race in person if they choose. All runners are invited to our pre-race outdoor gathering the evening of August 14 at the CCALS Heald Center in Falmouth. Our special guests, Jonathan Penner and Chris Lambton, will be running live and attending the pre-race party.

Race Date August 15, 2021

At-home Registration Deadline: July 15th
In Person Registration Deadline: August 9th

Registration & fundraising

The Falmouth Road Race is one of our largest annual fundraising events and we are asking for your support to help us reach our goal of $250,000! This year’s registration fee is $175 (the amount it costs us to purchase your number from the Falmouth Road Race) and we ask our runners to raise a suggested minimum of $1,500 to support CCALS. 

All CCALS Falmouth Road Race runners are supporting our ALS Patient, Family and Caregiver Program. This year has been particularly difficult, as we have allocated resources to adapt to the new reality of COVID-19. We continue to work tirelessly to ensure that all ALS individuals, families, and caregivers had access to the resources and support they needed during this challenging time.

Run with your friends or family on your own team!

Runners, joggers and walkers can sign up to run individually or gather friends and family to create their own team! In addition to the Falmouth Road Race branded swag bag you will receive, CCALS will provide T-shirts and send pre-race party baskets with fun surprises for participants who raise at least $500, in lieu of our pre-race party at the Seacrest. Each individual will have their own fundraising page to share with their supporters. To run with us, click “register” at the top of the page.

Who will get to run in-person in a hybrid race?

In the case of a hybrid race, only 30% of our runners will be eligible to run the course in Falmouth on race day. Runners who raise at least $500 and select the option for running in person on their registration form will be entered in a drawing to receive an “in-person” event bib.

What does a virtual race look like?

If there is a virtual option of the Falmouth Road Race At-Home Edition, runners will have the flexibility to complete their 7 miles on their own time and on their own course during one week (week TBD), to ensure social distancing. This is a great opportunity for individuals to walk the race this year as well! Participants will still receive Falmouth Road Race bibs and upload their results to the Falmouth Road Race’s Race Roster website to get their ranking.
