Sunday’s ‘Run for Love’ a benefit for Oxfam America

Published: 8/24/2016 3:14:34 PM

In addition to the food, the music and the good times promised to festivalgoers at this weekend’s “Amourasaurus II,” three members of the headlining band, Lake Street Dive (Rachael Price, Bridget Kearney and Mike Calabrese), will lead teams in a road race Sunday to benefit Oxfam America.

The race, dubbed “Amourasaurus II Run for Love,” starts at 10 a.m. at Look Park in Florence.

“It was our manager’s idea, said Price, Lake Street’s lead vocalist. “We’ve been working with Oxfam for about a year now and we wanted to do as much as we can with them.”

Oxfam America is a global organization that aims to end poverty, hunger and injustice through the creation of long-term solutions and campaigns for social change.

To join a team for the 5k road race, led by your favorite Lake Street Dive musician, register at amourasaurus.com.

There is a $20 fee. All runners will get a shirt with their team color: light blue for Price, purple for Calabrese, and pink for Kearney.
