Samaritans 5K

If you will be in the Boston area this coming weekend, please join us for an important event—the Samaritans 5K Run/Walk. On Saturday, Oct 2nd, “Team Flying Saucers” will again be gathering in Boston to participate in the “Run for Someone Else’s Life”, an annual awareness and fundraising event for Samaritans, Inc. (, a nonprofit organization that works to alleviate despair, isolation, distress and suicidal feelings 24 hrs a day, to educate the public about suicide prevention, and to reduce the stigma associated with suicide.

We’ll be participating in loving memory of my father, Tom Gough, and celebrating the legacy of compassion he left behind.

Why Flying Saucers? To read the personal story behind our team’s name, visit our team page.

Footnote: If we could clone ourselves for the day, Lisa and I would also participate in this year’s JDRF Boston Walk to Cure Diabetes, being held just down the Charles River a bit at the DCR Hatch Shell.

Please consider participating in one of these great events.

Never underestimate the power of a planted seed:

I love the blog, Rob, and I love that you highlighted the 5K a few months back! Sorry it took me so long to see it – haha. The Flying Saucers Logo that you created is fabulous.

I hope that you are doing well. We are excited to have your brother on our marathon team! He is so great. Maybe we can cheer for him on Marathon Monday from the same location!
Talk soon, Garrett

Garrett – Thanks for the note, and the kind words. We think the 5K is a fantastic and important event, and we’re pleased to support it in any way we can!
We too are pleased that Dan is part of the Samaritan’s Boston Marathon Team this year. It would be fun to connect with you on race day to cheer on the team. We’ll connect with you closer to the event re details!
