THE STORY:

Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston wrote -

The South Boston Boys & Girls Club Marathon Team will support the Southie Club’s proven and critical youth development programs. The “Club” has been serving the community on the corner of West 6th and F Streets since 1940.

Training for a marathon for months, then running 26.2 miles, is a difficult and daunting challenge. Being a kid these days is difficult, being a teen is daunting.. Being a young person in the city, making positive choices in a negative environment, is a challenge. So we run for them.

The South Boston Club serves over 535 diverse youth ages 6-18 on a regular basis, with 220-250 attending daily. 29% of our kids are from families with less than $13,000 annual household income; 27% from the $13,000-27,000 range; and 16% from families above $43,000. Our members are exceptionally diverse, socioeconomically and culturally, and attend 75 different schools. Only 36% of our members live with both parents. Our daily focus is on developing positive self-identity and key skills.
