Tools will be provided. Come help with lunch to follow.

 

Boston Marathon Weekend

On Marathon Weekend we ran for children with special needs and their families. We met our goal to sponsor 5 families with special needs to attend a refreshing week at Joni and Friends Family Retreat, and made a meaningful contribution to updating the sensory garden at the Carter School in Boston.

Joni and Friends Family Retreats offer a haven for special needs families where they are encouraged and rejuvenated in a fully accessible camp environment.  Families look forward to this respite for 51 weeks a year. 

The Carter School is a Boston Public School located on the border of Boston’s Lower Roxbury and South End neighborhoods.  Ranging in age from 12 to 22, Carter students have both severe, intensive disabilities and complex health needs. The school is a bright haven for children and their families. In the sensory garden, students learn, play, and plant vegetables in a quiet protected place.

Thanks for running with us, and supporting our runners!

 

Cinco de Mayo Party

Thanks for joining us at the Cinco de Mayo celebration at the Bell in Hand Boston to raise funding for the Carter School in Boston. The Carter School educates children with severe, intensive disabilities.

Together, we raised $10,000 to update the sensory garden. Thanks to our amazing sponsors and all of you that attended to the event and volunteered!

Let’s make this an annual event!
