Playworks Metro Boston Run For Recess Marathon Team FUNdraiser

  1. Updates

Playworks Metro Boston has been chosen as one of six new official charities of the 2011 Boston Athletic Association Marathon. We have filled a team of 15 runners dedicated not only to finishing the 115th Boston Marathon but also fundraising to help keep Playworks operating in schools throughout the Metro Boston area, affecting the lives of over 10,000 kids.

The Playworks Metro Boston Run For Recess Marathon team held a FUNdraiser on Friday, Jan 21, from 5:30-8:30pm. The event was held at The Pour House in Back Bay for complimentary appetizers, drinks galore, and featured a stellar silent auction, and an opportunity to support safe and healthy play in low-income schools
