THE STORY:

Kendall Bryant wrote -

.826 miles is the equivalent of running the length of a football field approximately 12 times. 

So why is it so important to me? 

The Boston Half, Half, Half, Half, Half Marathon (.826 miles) will support 826 Boston, a nonprofit youth writing and publishing organization that empowers traditionally underserved students ages 6-18 to find their voices, tell their stories, and gain communication skills to succeed in school and in life. 

I’ve been a volunteer with 826 Boston for over a year as an after-school tutor, as well as a member of the editorial board, helping to bring the creative ideas of students to life through writing. 

So while running .826 miles in the short-term may not seem like a lot, the long-term impact of this event will carry these students to great distances in their life. Way further than I could ever attempt to run.

Want to be a HALFlete? Join the team! You can either run with me on April 13th at 6:30pm on Boston Common, or virtually support* us. When you give $25 or more, you’ll receive entry to the run and one free drink post run! 

*Every single dollar raised will go directly to 826 Boston's free writing and publishing programs, helping more than 3,500 students in Boston each year.
