THE STORY:

NO MORE HURTING PEOPLE.

THE MARTIN W. RICHARD CHARITABLE FOUNDATION HONORS MARTIN'S MESSAGE OF "NO MORE HURTING PEOPLE. PEACE" BY INVESTING IN EDUCATION, ATHLETICS AND COMMUNITY.

The Martin W. Richard Charitable Foundation, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization formed by the parents of eight-year-old Martin Richard, who was killed in the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15, 2013.

Martin was a boy who loved learning, sports and the world around him. He participated in the BAA Children’s Relay on Boston Marathon weekend for three consecutive years. He was a school Peacemaker and recognized at a young age that while we are all different, we are all the same.

The way Martin saw the world anything was possible.

In the days after the bombing, a photo of Martin holding his handmade poster that read “No more hurting people. Peace ” went global and made many see him as a symbol of peace. Martin Richard’s view of peace went well beyond simply wanting to prevent violence. To Martin, peace meant things like togetherness, teamwork, fairness, sportsmanship, inclusion, and the prevention of bullying.

Bill and Denise Richard determined it was fitting that the foundation should honor Martin’s message of peace by investing in education, athletics and community. The Foundation’s nickname, MR8, is derived from Martin’s initials, as well as age, which was also the number he preferred to wear in sports.
