Team MBHP is ready for Race Day!
April 15, 2017
BENEFITING: METROPOLITAN BOSTON HOUSING PARTNERSHIP INC
EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
The five runners of Team MBHP 2017 join past teams since 2006, that have raised more than $300,000 to support MBHP and the programs and services that prevent families and individuals throughout Greater Boston every year, from becoming homeless.
Please support them-and take a moment over the next five months to get to know them. This is how long they will be training, some of the slogging through winter slush and snow. It is how long they will be raising $6,000- $10,000 to help people be safe, as they still work every day, as some take care of their kids and as they have to pay their own bills. And because each runner has their own story, and their own reason for taking this challenge.
