The goal of the Flutie Foundation is to improve the quality of life for people and families affected by autism.  We are dedicated to increasing the awareness of autism and the unique challenges of families who are faced with it everyday.  Funds raised by Dougie’s Marathon Team will be put toward supporting these families by helping them find the resources they need and by funding advocacy programs as well as educational, therapeutic and recreational opportunities.

1935 John A. Kelley

Born in West Medford, Massachusetts as one of ten children, Kelley ran track and cross-country at Arlington High School in Massachusetts. He did not finish his first Boston Marathon in 1928, but eventually competed in a record 61 Boston Marathons. A legend of the marathon, Kelley won the 1935 and 1945 runnings of the Boston Marathon. He finished in second place at Boston a record seven times. Between 1934 to 1950, he finished in the top five 15 times at Boston, consistently running in the 2:30s. He ran his last full marathon at Boston in 1992 at the age of 84, his 61st start and 58th finish there.
