Masquerade Ball: What is the attire?
We ask that guests dress formal, black-tie is optional.
Masquerade Ball: Do I have to wear a mask?
To honor our theme and mission to lift the mask, we strongly encourage all guests to arrive wearing masks which we will remove during the welcome remarks and Lift the Mask ceremony before dinner begins.
Masquerade Ball: Does The Quell Foundation provide masks?
The Quell Foundation typically carries extra masks at registration on the night of the event, however, we do request that masks be secured on your own, in advance of the evening as we cannot guarantee enough masks for all attendees. Plus…it’s more fun to pick your own!
Falmouth Road Race: How can I get a bib to run with Team Quell?

Falmouth Road Race: What happens if I don’t meet the fundraising minimum?
The Quell Foundation reserves the right to charge the remaining balance of an unmet fundraising goal to the runner’s credit card.

At this time our documentary is only available for screenings in controlled environments with audiences who are then encouraged to participate in the post-screening panel discussion.
