Run or Walk with Team NOFA/Mass on November 3 in Lexington

November 3, 2013 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm
Genesis Battlegreen Run
Lexington, MA

NOFA/Mass members, families and friends are coming together for a great cause and you’re invited! Join “TEAM NOFA/MASS: Run for Organic Food for All” at the18th Annual Genesis Battlegreen Run, a 10k/5k run and 5k walk held on November 3rd.

Funds raised by the team will support NOFA/Mass’ policy initiatives, which educate consumers, farmers and policymakers on the most pressing agricultural and food issues of our day. We are organizing our community to advocate for laws and regulations that support local Massachusetts farmers, allow consumers access to high quality, humanely raised food and build a transparent food system that fully labels ingredients – most urgently GMOs!
