2020 Virtual MODFEST Family Walk

MOD Events

Virtual MODFEST is now a Family Fun Walk for 2020

Due to COVID-19, MODFEST Family Fun Festival will be a virtual family fun walk in 2020.

Now a Virtual Walk
September 14 to September 20, 2020

In light of COVID-19, and due to safety concerns for our supporters, Mission of Deeds’ traditional MODFEST Family Fun Festival event will now be celebrated in 2020 as a virtual walk!

During this pandemic, families have spent more time together enjoying simpler things such as biking, walking, baking, and game playing.

Our inaugural event, which began in 2008, started as a simple walk around Lake Quannapowitt with the enthusiastic support of our founder, Tony Triglione. Mission of Deeds will now also step back to simpler times as we invite you to be part of our Tony Triglione Memorial Virtual Walk. Between September 14th and September 20th, walk in your back yard, around your neighborhood, or even “from sea to shining sea”, but join us in support of Mission of Deeds’ good works.

More and more people who have never needed assistance will be reaching out to Mission of Deeds because of the pandemic’s impact on them. Now, more than ever, we will need your support! We are now purchasing additional linens and small household goods to ensure that we are giving the safest items to our clients during the COVID-19 crisis.

Socially Distanced But Still Together. . . Transforming Generosity Into Hope!

Get Your Virtual MODFEST T-Shirts For Your Walk

With donations of $25.00 for individuals, and $50 for families, Virtual MODFEST Walk Event T-shirts will be available for pickup on Monday, September 14th through Friday, September 18th from 10 AM-2 PM in the parking lot at Mission of Deeds, 6 Chapin Avenue, Reading MA. Assorted adult sizes will be available.
