Team Trinity raises funds for the programs of the Trinity Boston Foundation.Trinity Boston Foundation’s mission is to unlock opportunity and change the odds for the youth of Boston.
This is accomplished primarily through two programs:
One, the Trinity Education for Excellence Program (TEEP), which 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.
Two, Sole Train: Boston Runs Together, which 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.
I have participated in Sole Train events and they are extraoirdinary and inspiring. I am honored to be part of Team Trinity, raising funds to support these amazing programs.
