The Running for Great Kids Marathon team is vital to the success of Goodwill’s Youth Initiative. The Youth Initiative is designed to raise aspirations and enhance the skills and opportunities of young people living in underserved Boston communities, especially Roxbury, Dorchester and Mattapan. This innovative program applies Goodwill’s mission of helping individuals overcome barriers and achieve self-sufficiency to the youngest participants in the community. Intended to provide students a bridge between school and adulthood, the program emphasizes academic achievement, community service and leadership development.
Our 2014 team is composed of selfless individuals committed to supporting the academic, personal and professional development of the almost 200 children from underserved communities in Boston who participate in our Youth Initiative programming.
Each mile run and dollar raised goes to support this great program. Thank you for helping Goodwill continue its legacy of assisting youth with limited opportunities realize their full potential.
