The Lee Ann Mannillo Foundation is a charity dedicated to supporting families who have experienced a tragic loss. The Foundation was formed after the unexpected and devastating loss of Lee Ann Mannillo mere hours after her twin sons were born in May 2014.

Lee was a dedicated and celebrated employee of Barnstable County and an avid supporter of community enrichment and service. Outside of work she was a vivacious and loving individual who made connections and friends everywhere she went. It is no surprise that an event in her honor was something so many chose to participate in to honor her legacy. Last year the inaugural race generated over $15,000 in support for local families who were struggling with the loss of a parent.

This year we’re aiming to exceed last year’s contributions to benefit families and children in our region. As always, this will be a family-friendly race. The race will be held on Mother’s Day May 8th and the kick off and closing will be celebratory and supportive of all the runners and their families.

If you or your place of business would be interested in joining us as a sponsor,  you can find Sponsorship forms here: Sponsorship Forms.  If you would simply like to donate to the cause you can do so here:  Donate
Your contribution as a sponsor or donor will help us to further our mission and serve families in need in our community. 

The Lee Ann Mannillo Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to supporting families who have experienced the devastating loss of a parent or child. On behalf of all of the Lee Ann Mannillo Foundation Board Members, LM5K volunteers and Lee’s friends and family, I thank you for your consideration!

All donations will receive a receipt for tax purposes from The Lee Ann Mannillo Foundation, Inc.   Again, any amount you could contribute would be most welcome. If you want to volunteer, please contact us using the Contact form.  Thank you for all your support while we work towards getting this inaugural race off and running!
