RUN FOR ALL
3rd Annual Event
Sunday, June 9, 2019
FRANKLIN PARK, Jamaica Plain, MA
At the Franklin Park Playstead (the field near White Stadium)
Our flagship event is back for the third year! Join us for a great community gathering with music, snacks, and festivities. We'll join together for a unified, non-competitive mile long run/walk in the park. It's a great day of fun that's open to all.
While the event is completely free, we will be accepting donations to support two incredible organizations:
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.
Run For All is a part of
Boston For All Week
Boston For All Week is a week-long festival of inclusion and generosity. All of our neighbors and friends and invited to join us for three different events to support immigrant rights and legal advocacy in Boston. Participation in our events is open for anyone who'd like to join us – and all donations will support organizations working to promote the movement for an inclusive nation.
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.
Here's our crowd listening to guest speaker Matt Allen, Field Director of the Massachusetts ACLU.
