THE STORY:

I fell in love with running the same year I lost my oldest and best friend, Merritt Levitan.

Now, I run for both of us.

Merritt was biking across the country, from Charleston to Santa Monica. After her cross-country challenge, we were heading off as freshman in college. Merritt made it to Arkansas, when a driver who was texting, killed her.

Two years later, I ran Boston, my first marathon. To raise money for Merritt’s Way, a Trinity Boston Foundation scholarship, and for TextLess Live More, our campaign against distracted driving.

Now, as a college senior, I’m running the 2017 Boston to Big Sur Marathon Challenge for Merritt’s Way and TextLess Live More. When I toe the line in Hopkinton, and two weeks later, dip my toes in the Pacific, I will have completed the coast-to-coast challenge for Merritt and me.

I run for Merritt.

See below for more info about the Trinity Boston Foundation and the Merritt's Way Scholarship Fund. Please share and donate to allow others to live "Merritt's Way."

Annually, the Merritt's Way Scholarship fund gives 3-4 students the opportunity to participate in the Trinity Excellence for Education (TEEP) program at Trinity Church in Boston. TEEP is an after school program for at risk, Boston middle and high school students.

Trinity Boston Foundation Inc wrote -

Trinity Boston Foundation is an official charity of the Boston Athletic Association, with a collective fundraising goal of $82,500. 

Trinity Boston Foundation’s mission is to unlock opportunity and change the odds for the youth of Boston. We 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.

Trinity Boston Foundation's work was born out of the strong social justice mission of Trinity Church Boston. Our longest-standing programs, the Trinity Boston Counseling Center and Trinity Education for Excellence Program joined to become a 501(c)(3) in 2007, with our running program, Sole Train, added to the portfolio in 2009. In 2013, we added an embedded program at the McCormack Middle School in Dorchester, which is a 100% minority attended school in the Boston Public School system. Currently, Trinity Boston Foundation 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.

Each of our 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. Trinity Boston Foundation integrates trauma-informed approaches, restorative justice practices, and racial identity development into all its programs and aligns with an intervention model for preventing youth violence as defined by Boston’s Youth Violence Prevention Funder Learning Collaborative.
