Walker provides intensive therapeutic and academic services for exceptionally vulnerable yet resilient children, teens, and families facing complex social, emotional, behavioral, and learning challenges.
Team Walker is more than the 7 amazing individuals running the Boston Marathon in support of our organization. It is the students and staff at The Walker School who will run laps around campus in the spring to accumulate 26.2 miles and race in spirit with the team! It is the 20,000 children, teens, and families impacted each year through Walker's therapeutic, academic, training, and consultation programs. It is our friends, our supporters, and the people just like you who cheer us on along the way!
By supporting us YOU are a part of Team Walker!
Help change the lives of children, teens, and families facing extraordinary challenges. Thank you for your support!
