On Monday, April 21st, 2014, members of Team Cradles to Crayons will lace up their sneakers for the 118th Boston Marathon and make every mile count for the children that we serve. The money raised by our marathon runners will directly support our vision, that one day every child will have the everyday essential items they need to thrive - at home, at school, and at play.
About Cradles to Crayons:
Founded in 2002, Cradles to Crayons provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive - at home, at school and at play. We supply these items free of charge by engaging and connecting communities that have with communities that need.
More than 305,000 children ages 0-12 are living in low-income or poverty stricken households in Massachusetts; each year, an estimated 100,000 Massachusetts children will experience the desperation of homelessness. These children are often lacking the basic essentials they need and deserve to thrive.
Please support the Cradles to Crayons Boston Marathon Team’s efforts to help provide essential items like clothing for a week, winter coats, shoes, books, developmental toys and more for the children we serve.
