Rock 102’s Mayflower Marathon returns in downtown Springfield

Hampden County

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Rock 102’s annual Mayflower Marathon is back for 2021; the event hopes to fill three, 48-foot trailers with non-perishable food donations.

All donations will go to the Open Pantry located in Springfield. Participants are asked to bring non perishable food donations to the south lot at the Basketball Hall Of Fame. Those interested in contributing financially can do so on their website.

To promote the donation drive, the Rock 102’s Bax and O’Brian will run a 52-hour broadcast. The broadcast will start from 5:30 a.m. on Monday, November 22nd and run until 10 a.m. on Wednesday, November 24th.

“If suddenly your economic status were to change drastically, and you had nowhere else to go for food for your family, the open pantry is where you would go,” said radio host Mike Baxendale.

“You’re not only helping out people who may be your neighbors but you’re also helping out everybody in this region that could be in need for these services,” said radio host Steve Nagle.

The duo will be live from the Basketball Hall Of Fame in downtown Springfield.
