Julie Runs Boston

2017 Marathon Fundraiser for the Trinity Boston Foundation

Hi! I’m Julie, and this winter I’m training to run my first marathon. I was selected to run in the 2017 Boston Marathon as a charity runner in support of the Trinity Boston Foundation. Their programs provide academic mentoring, leadership development, and health and wellness programming, which lead to increased high school graduation and college-going rates. I’ve committed to raising $8,000 to support a cause I care deeply about.

I've dedicated my career to empowering young people, and now I'm asking my friends, family, and network to join in. I still can't fathom running 26.2 miles, but with your help I believe I can make it!

All proceeds from this online auction will benefit the Trinity Boston Foundation. I solicited over a hundred local businesses, and received over $1,000 of donated goods and gift cards! Help me turn these donations into real dollars to support TBF. 

Here's more about the charity you'll be supporting: 

Trinity Boston Foundation’s mission is to unlock opportunity and change the odds for the youth of Boston. They build communities that: affirm, inspire, and empower youth; offer support for physical, emotional, and psychological well-being; and strengthen community health and cohesion across Boston. TBF provides direct service to 575 youth and families and impacts thousands through professional training services offered by the Counseling Center in schools and organizations across Boston.

Trinity Boston’s Three Programs:

  • Trinity Boston Counseling Center (TBCC): Services the mental health of individuals, families and youth-serving Boston agencies. TBCC partners with City Year, St. Stephens Youth Programs, the MA Department of Youth Services, College Bound Dorchester and the McCormack Middle School in Dorchester (a 100% minority attended school in the Boston Public School system).
  • Trinity Education for Excellence Program (TEEP): Offers tuition-free year-round and summer programming to low-income middle and high school youth in Boston Public schools. TEEP has a summer program for middle school students (with high school counselors) and a year-round Leadership Development Program for high school students. TEEP services 130 students annually.
  • Sole Train: Mentoring and community-building program where mentorship pairs train together during the academic year to run Boston’s Run to Remember 5K or half marathon. The program uses running to help students learn about setting and achieving seemingly impossible goals. Sole Train serves 140 students across 10 Boston Public Schools.

Each of these three youth-serving programs target social-emotional wellness and personal achievement through academic mentoring and support, leadership development, counseling services, and running/physical wellness training.
