THE STORY:

I'm so excited to have the opportunity to run the 2015 Boston Marathon for the Trinity Boston Foundation. For the past two years I have been able to watch the first hand impact that Sole Train has had on my brother, Zachary Berkowitz. The partnership that forms between strangers and students is one that still amazes me every time I'm around my brother and his kids. I had the opportunity to watch my brother and some of his students participate in this years 'Run to Remember'. Sole Train organizers, parents, and future runners were all there supporting the same cause. As students crossed the finish line after their completion of either a 5k or half-marathon, smiles could easily been seen all around. The words of "Go Sole Train" echoed loudly through the large group of spectators who were at the finish line waiting for their fellow runners. It was at the very end, 3 hours after the start, that my brother ran by with his student. Zack's student was supposed to run the 5k but took a wrong turn and ended up on the half-marathon route. Through motivating words, strong legs, and the willingness to not give up, Zack and his buddy finished. I was proud to be there as his sister supporting his passion but even more proud of the encouragement and positive reinforcement that Zack gave his fellow runner.

Please consider making a donation, nearly 100% of your donation will go directly to theTrinity Boston Foundation in support of 3 programs: 

1) Sole Train: Boston Runs Together is a free, non-competitive, long distance running program based at Boston Public Schools and Department of Youth Services. In Sole Train, teens from Boston neighborhoods, many of whom have never run before, train for and complete a half marathon or 5-mile race.  In the process, they find their place in a supportive community that celebrates them and helps them discover just how far they can go.

2) Trinity Education for Excellence Program (TEEP) empowers students to achieve excellence, both inside and outside of the classroom. This tuition-free, out-of-school-time character and leadership development program engages Boston Public middle and high school students with a safe and supportive community. TEEP focuses on youth development through a fusion of academic support, experiential learning, and community building

3) The Trinity Boston Counseling Center (TBCC) was founded in 2002 and serves the mental health needs of individuals, families, and groups in the Boston community through direct services and referrals. Our goal is to provide a safe refuge and inclusive space for clients in order to find healing, purpose, and peace in the midst of life’s complexity. It is our priority to honor each individual’s spirituality and faith background, if any. Our clients include youth, families, youth workers, and other adults. Our primary model for service delivery is to embed ourselves within organizations in need of clinical support. This enables continuity of care for young people and on-site clinical consultation for the organizational staff.

With wishes for warm weather, good running, and love in mind. 
:) Emily
