Franklin Park CoalitionĀ is no longer accepting applications for the 2014 Boston Marathon. Qualified runners that have been accepted in the 2014 Boston Marathon are invited to contact us for more information about joining our team.
The Franklin Park Coalition brings diverse park constituents together to advocate for and steward the park, working on park management and maintenance, woodlands restoration, public safety, and cultural programming. Funds raised through the B.A.A. Boston Marathon Charity Program will help the Franklin Park Coalition provide excellence in athletic endeavors including restoration of the cross-country track, basketball courts, and Ellicottdale little league diamond. Funds will also support the Summer Youth Conservation Crew, which provides educational, athletic, and work opportunities for underserved local high school students.
