The Catholic Charities of Boston Team is proud to be running as part of the John Hancock Marathon Program.
Catholic Charities' programs serve the poor and working poor in your community with dignity and compassion. We support families as they struggle to put food on the table, secure child care for their children and seek out better opportunities through education. Last year alone, Catholic Charities served over 200,000 of your neighbors across the Archdiocese of Boston. At Catholic Charities, we strive to help people become self-sufficient.
We are excited to have four runners compete on the 2012 Catholic Charities Boston Marathon Team. For the past four years, the Catholic Charities Boston Team has taken the 26.2 mile journey from Hopkinton to Boston to support its social service programs from feeding the poor to mentoring youth to caring for our elders.
Some of our programs include:
Visiting Nurse Services
Education (ESOL and GED)
Refugee and Immigration Services
Mentoring and Tutoring
Nurse Aide Training
Shelters and Food Pantries

Join us in our mission to build a just and compassionate society rooted in the dignity of all people. Thank You for your generosity!
