On Monday April 17th, Erin Sunderland (the runner on the left) crossed the finish line of the Boston Marathon as 826 Boston’s first marathon runner, and we could not be more proud and honored.

Erin endured months of training in frigid conditions only to race on a punishingly hot day. She surpassed her $7,000 goal for 826 Boston’s free writing programs.

We also owe a debt of gratitude to Boston Magazine for the generous donation of the marathon bib, and to everyone who supported Erin’s fundraising effort.
