Support Goodwill's Boston Marathon Team

Support Goodwill's 2014 Boston Marathon


Twenty-three dedicated runners will be lacing up their sneakers on Monday, April 21, to run the historic Boston Marathon as part of Goodwill's Running for Great Kids team.

This amazing group of runners comes from across the country to help raise vital funds for Goodwill's Youth Initiative, a program designed to raise the aspirations and enhance the skills of young people living in underserved Boston communities. This innovative program helps students bridge to adulthood, and emphasizes academic achievement, community service and leadership development.

Each of our runners has their own personal reasons for wanting to run Boston in 2014, yet they have all come together with a common goal to raise money to help the youth that Goodwill serves reach their full potential. They are role models for these young people - demonstrating the commitment and determination needed to accomplish a goal.

To learn more about each of our runners and their journey to the finish line on April 21, visit our fundraising page today! All proceeds from Goodwill's Marathon program will go to the Peter Morrissey Youth Fund.
