Team Candorful’s Half-Marathon to Honor Patriots Day 2024

A note from

Executive Director, Pat Hubbell:

I am proud to tell you that our half-marathon team has grown to a true team, with 5 of us running the Fast Half in Hamilton, MA on April 21, 2024 to honor Patriot’s Day.

Patriot’s Day, the day when the shot heard ’round the world sparked the revolution from Lexington/Concord, MA, and the beginning of this great experiment now known as the USA. Lexington and Concord are just a bit down the road from where Team Candorful will hit the pavement to support our present-day Patriots and their families as they come home after selfless service.

Kind regards,

Pat Hubbell
Candorful Cofounder & Executive Director

Imagine Giving a Gift That

Removes the intense stress of the military-to-civilian transition for a veteran,


Enables them to land in the right job, at the right level,


Eliminates the fear of food and housing insecurity for a military family,

That’s exactly what a donation to Candorful will do!

Please support Team Candorful’s half-marathon to honor Patriots Day 2024. Once again we have an amazing board member who has pledged $25,000 if we can raise OVER $25,000.

Will you help us get there?

Thank you for all the wonderful support you all have shown us!
I am grateful for each and every one of you!

One thing is for sure, we are going to have one of the fittest volunteer communities around!
