Run for Rich

This 5K Run/Walk on November 9th is a tribute to Rich Angelo, a great man, veteran and extraordinary athlete. We gather at this family friendly event open to adults and children to pay tribute to Rich and everything/everyone he touched while here with us. While the size of the event has grown each year the importance and remembrance becomes that much more special each year that passes by. We hope you are able to participate and help raise money for the Rich Angelo Athletic Scholarship Fund.


Proceeds will be allocated to the “Rich Angelo Athletic Scholarship Fund” atMaldenHigh School. Rich grew up inMalden and was well known in the community.

On Sunday, November 11, 2012 over 475 participants came together to honor and celebrate Rich’s life while either running or walking in the R11A 5K.   Thank you so much for your support and generosity.  The event raised over $10,000 for the scholarship fund as a result of registrations and sponsorship.  Again, thank you very much.

2012 Pre-Race Remarks:

“On behalf of the entire Angelo family I’d like thank you for choosing to be here today.

Rich Angelo is our connection. Rich Angelo is the reason we are here today. No one expected us to be here, but our choices are few.

We can either go our separate ways or we can stay together and show our appreciation for the connection he gives us.

We can stay defeated or we can rise after the fall.

We can talk the talk or go ALL-IN and walk the walk.

Thank you for choosing to stay together, to show your appreciation and for going ALL-IN for Rich and his family.”  -Marty Miserandino, a friend.

    Why am I running in honor of Rich Angelo?

    I got my first exposure to Triathlons, as a spectator, in July when my son Chuck Rodrigues successfully participated in Ironman Lake Placid. I found this to be an incredible event. Since then I have attended a few Triathlons as a spectator and I am in awe of the athletes that participate in these events. Even though Triathlons are a competitive event it doesn’t look like a competition against each other but more of a competition within one’s self. I have observed athletes sharing water, food, air pumps, tire tubes, etc. prior to race time. These athletes support each other and get their drive and inspiration from each other. I know Rich Angelo was one of these athletes.

    It is people like Rich Angelo that Inspire me to run my first race and to train and prepare for my first Triathlon.

    Why am I running? 

    I am running for the man who made me the person I am today… A man who has shaped my moral compass and paved the path of my life. I am running for the man   who made me laugh when I was sad, rewarded me when I made him proud, and punished me when I disobeyed the rules. I am running for the man who has showed me what a man truly is, and can be. I am running for my father because he ran for me all his life. I love you dad and I will run for you until the end of time because you deserve the honor.

    I am running this 5K in honor of a fellow Triathlete and Springfield College alumni. I met Rich at the USAT Tri Nationals in Burlington this past August. He treated me like a friend even though we had just met. Devastated to hear of his passing during the Swim. Rich definitely embodied the Springfield College Humanics philosophy, be good to people and treat all with respect.
