First Ever Half Half Half Half Half Marathon Raises $26,055 for 826 Boston!

April 18, 2017

Screen Shot 2017-04-18 at 1.14.39 PMOn Thursday April 13th, 80 runners gathered on the Boston Common to break a light sweat for young writers in Boston. We surpassed our goal of $25,000 during the event!

Our “real” Boston Marathon runner, Erin Sunderland, kicked us off with a quick warm-up. Then these runners took on the course.

After the race, 826 Boston Program Manager Karen Sama awarded prizes to the top 10 finishers, as well as for categories such as Most Creative Poster and Largest Team. Our event co-producers, Berman Creative, is pictured modeling their winning costumes.

Thank you to everyone who supported a team or ran. We couldn’t have done it without our amazing community!
