Thanks to all who have joined our family of Mayfest supporters!

You have given so generously at a time when so many more are struggling. Your response has encouraged us to provide even more support to our neighbors who need it most. Today, we raise a glass to you, to all the wonderful Mayfest restaurants, our volunteers and staff.


Please check back to see how generous and supportive our Construct Community is.

After your delicious MayFest meal and libations you may feel the need to get outside and burn off some of those tasty calories. We have the perfect solution!!


Please join Fairview Hospital in support of Construct in their Virtual race/walk over the upcoming Memorial Day weekend:

Together…Every Step of the Way

Information and instructions below ↓

This is a Virtual Race sponsored by the staff at Fairview Hospital in recognition of the ongoing community support during this uncertain time. The proceeds will be donated to Construct, an organization that is committed to affordable housing for everyone and providing the support needed to achieve it. We recognize that there is a close relationship between a stable home and health care. Shelter in place presumes that you have a home to go to but with the closure of local businesses, more people are looking for help to secure a stable home, to pay the rent and to continue being a landlord. Construct is committed to helping people get the resources that they need.


With the help of the Berkshire Running Center we hope that everyone will use this opportunity to dedicate their walk/run to support our cause.

Participation from: Virtual Race (walk or run) can be completed in your own neighborhood, on your favorite running trail, at the park (while maintaining social distancing) or even on the treadmill.


Sign up: Berkshire Running Center at:


When: Complete a 5K, 10K, or Half-Marathon or just a few symbolic steps any time over the Memorial Day weekend (May 23, 24, and 25).


Suggested Fee/Donation: $20 per person or whatever you feel that you can give.


Swag: There will be no T shirts as we feel that we should save our resources at this time.


Bib: Download the attached PDF on the Berkshire Running Center website and wear it while you walk/run.


Photos: Please send your photos/selfies to so that we can share them with the community.
