26.2 Days of Inspired Acts of Kindess
On Marathon Day 2013, Boston Cares was inundated with people who wanted to help and support from around the country. There was little that volunteers could do on the ground, so we channeled their drive into a social media campaign called #MilesofGood, which captured the good deeds people were doing all over. We ran it for the 26 days following the Marathon and it helped us recognize that Boston Strong reality.
This year, in the 26.2 days leading up to the Marathon on April 18th, Boston Cares and our community posted daily about the many creative and inspiring ways that volunteers have responded to the ever-changing needs of their communities. It is our goal to continually highlight the positive stories that have come from something that chilled us.
Thank you to our runners!
We are so proud of our two incredible Boston Marathon runners: Catherine Zagroba & Stefanie O'Shea. Their passion and dedication is truly remarkable and we are so proud! Thank you!
