BENEFITING: The James W. Foley Legacy Foundation

EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon

EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017

THE STORY:

James "Jim" Foley was the brave American journalist the world tragically came to know through his brutal murder at the hands of an ISIS terrorist group on August 19th, 2014, ending 21 months of torture and captivity. His very public death shocked our nation to its core. But Jim was so much more than the story of his death. The legacy he ultimately left behind is more powerful and courageous than any act of terrorism. 

One month after Jim’s murder, the James W. Foley Legacy Foundation was formed to continue Jim’s legacy: conflict journalist, educator, humanitarian. The Foundation, among other things, strives to ensure the safety and rights of conflict journalists around the world, advocate for American hostages, and provide support to families of American hostages. Moving forward, the Foundation will also aim to inspire and educate high school, college, and graduate students to explore the value and threats to freedom of speech and the dangers of freelance conflict journalism and reporting in the midst of terrorism and violence.  With the funds raised from the John Hancock Non-Profit Program, the Foundation will continue its collaborative work to vastly improve the safety of journalists who venture into conflict areas to bring us the truth and to work with our government to ensure all Americans held hostage are safely returned. 

Journalist Jim Foley summoned extraordinary moral courage during his captivity and eventual brutal murder at the hands of ISIS terrorists, staying true to his commitment to freedom. In many ways, he embodied the same spirit and courage as the thousands of Bostonians and the Boston Marathon Committee when summoned as terrorism struck in 2013. And like the Boston Marathon, Jim's fearless legacy must continue.
