RUN FOR ALL
Stay tuned for the next event, date TBD in 2020.
Run For All 3: Recap
Run For All 3 was a part of Boston For All Week (2019) and it was a huge success! Over the course of the week, we raised over $20,000 in support of three fantastic organizations:
The Boston Immigration Justice Accompaniment Network (BIJAN) – providing legal representation and advocacy to immigrants in Boston facing detention and deportation.
Redes en Acción Venezuela – a local organization helping Venezuelan refugees settling in the Boston area.
Komera – an international organization promoting personal empowerment and education for girls in Rwanda.
And also a big thank you to our generous sponsors of Boston For All Week, without whom we wouldn't be able to do this work!
Run For All 2: Recap
It was another great day at Run For All 2! The community came out in full force and joined in the fun – all to benefit the Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition (MIRA). We heard from City Councilor Matt O'Malley and MIRA's Federal Policy Director Sarang Sekhavat before joining in our unified lap around Jamaica Pond. We raised over $3,500 to support MIRA's amazing work and had a great time doing it!

Run For All: Recap
We are so proud and excited that Run For All was the success that it was. Our neighbors and friends banded together and stood up for civil liberties in a way that showed everyone who we are and that we will stand up for what we believe in. With about 300 participants and $6,000 raised for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), we had one amazing day! Boston Neighborhood Network filmed the event and produced this segment highlighting us. Click here to see it. . . our section begins just after the 7-minute mark.
