Miles of Good: 26.2 Days of Inspired Acts of Kindness
Inspired by the incredible strength and community our city has shown before and after the Boston Marathon tragedy, Boston Cares is providing a platform to share your stories and acts of goodwill.
Miles of Good: 26.2 Days of Inspired Acts of Kindness is a campaign that encourages you to engage in acts of kindness throughout your community, to honor Monday's victims, those who heroically stepped into help,
and our power to heal.
