Team Testimonials

We’re more than a team — we’re a community who cares deeply for each other and the services provided by our partner charities. Since 2012, Team Brookline has recruited a selection of inspiring runners to take part in the Boston Marathon with the purpose of raising funds for five local nonprofits. Our passionate and committed team members range from first-time marathoners to seasoned veterans, training in Brookline and beyond, but they all share the same goal: to make our community strong, healthier, and to expand access to life-improving resources for all.
