Hale is no longer accepting applications for invitational entry into the 2017 Boston Marathon. Officially qualified participants who are already entered in the 2017 Boston Marathon that wish to raise funds for Hale may still do so using the contact information above.

If providing healthy living and outdoor education opportunities for low-income Boston students resonates with you, we encourage you to apply and “Run like Hale!”

Our team’s fundraising efforts support the Hale Outdoor Learning Adventures (HOLA) program. As one of five major need-based Summer Learning Opportunities available to Boston Public Schools students, HOLA seeks to prevent summer learning loss, encourage academic gains, and develop social-emotional skills during the summer months so students are ready to begin the next grade in the fall.

The achievement gap between low-income students and their higher-income peers is explained by unequal access to learning opportunities beyond the school day, and the well-documented “summer learning slide” most adversely affects low-income students. These problems are compounded by a lack of physical activity, which is directly linked to body weight and brain health. Time actively spent outdoors leads to mental stimulation, has numerous health benefits, and is paramount for development.

We hope you’ll join us in supporting HOLA’s work, and will serve as a role model for Boston’s youth by leading an active, healthy lifestyle!
