FCTV Exclusive: Olympian Molly Seidel

2020 Tokyo Olympic Marathon bronze medalist, Molly Seidel, served as the official race starter and joined the ASICS Falmouth Race field of nearly 8,000 registered participants as its very last runner. In support of Tommy’s Place, a vacation home in Falmouth for kids fighting cancer, Falmouth Road Race pledged to donate one dollar for every runner that she passed along the 7-mile course. Tim O’Connell, founder of Tommy’s Place, announced an additional dollar-for-dollar match. While Molly officially ran past four thousand seven hundred and sixty one runners along the way, the Falmouth Road Race is pleased to announce that it will double its pledge, bringing its donation to $9,522 dollars in appreciation of her participation in this year’s event and to celebrate her victory in Tokyo. Combined with Tim O’Connell’s match, that brings the grand total to nineteen thousand and forty four dollars.
