A native Bostonian, Ted Harrington is a lifelong entrepreneur now living in San Diego. Growing up in Newton, MA, Ted has memories as far back as they go of The Boston Marathon; this event that has always inspired him, even before he even understood why. It is a life goal of Ted’s to run this race. Ted’s mother Judy Harrington has worked tirelessly for years in the development department for Boston Partners in Education, and through her, he has been exposed to the many great things the organization does; with BPE’s 50th anniversary upon us, Ted knew exactly who he wanted to run this race for. Recognizing the many opportunities that education has created for himself, Ted is a passionate volunteer for the cause of education, serving special volunteer appointments at the University of Southern California, Georgetown University, and California State University San Marcos. To understand what makes Ted tick, and why he wants to run this particular marathon, you need look no further than the immortal words of fellow Bostonian JFK about the American mission to go to the moon:
“We choose to … do … things not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win”
