Boston’s Run To Remember is a non-profit fundraiser created by the Boston Police Department and the Boston Police Runner’s Club as a way to honor the over 260 Massachusetts Law Enforcement Officers killed in the line of duty while raising money for Kids At Risk Programs throughout the City of Boston. Boston’s Run To Remember is more than a road race and as a result, organizers are reaching out to many community organizations as a way to raise visibility to the many opportunities that exist for youth in the city of Boston. One such initiative is a partnership that has been formed between Boston’s Run To Remember, the Boston Police Runner’s Club, the Boston Police Department and the Colonel Daniel Marr Boys and Girls Club in Dorchester.
