I am running the 2013 Boston Marathon to support Sole Train: Boston Runs Together, a program of Trinity Boston Foundation. All donations will support Sole Train in the year the gift was made (2012 or 2013). Thank you so much!
A little about Sole Train:
Founded in 2009 as part of Trinity Boston Foundation, Sole Train is a free running and mentoring program for Boston youth. We aim to inspire the city's youth to reach their full potential and accomplish goals they never thought possible as they train for and complete a half marathon! We focus on the following strategic goals:
-Building a safe, supportive and inclusive community where all youth are welcome;
-Encouraging and fostering self-confidence, perseverance and responsibility by achieving personal and collective goals;
-Learning healthy habits through exercise and nutrition education;
-Expanding one's sense of responsibility, community and capacity to grow and change the world;
-Connecting youth to additional supports including academic, mental health and vocational services.
Sole Train youth learn that even seemingly impossible goals can be achieved when they identify the necessary steps that need to be taken, attain the appropriate support, and develop self confidence. Youth then learn to transfer these skills to other areas of their lives and strive to reach their full potential.
We greatly appreciate your support! A big thank you from Team Trinity!
