Emmy & MK Run the Boston Marathon
Organized by: Emily McLaughlin
We are running the Boston Marathon for the first time this year. This is exciting to us for so many reasons, but most importantly because we can help out our students!
We are running in honor of the Mather Elementary in Dorchester, MA, with our focus towards money for field trips. Field trips provide our students with learning outside of the classroom, as well as exposure to many of the resources our city has to offer.
Unfortunately, for a variety of reasons, field trips are becoming more and more expensive, and less and less accessible. As a result, our students are lacking the opportunities that field trips have to offer. Field trips are not only beneficial, but a necessity to one’s overall learning experience.
The weather has not made training easy, but it will make crossing the finish line that much sweeter! Thank you all for you support and encouraging words during our training.
