The Martin Richard Foundation Holds First Annual MR8-K at the TD Garden in Downtown Boston

Earlier today, on Monday September 3, 2018, over 1,500 runners came out in support of the MR8 Foundation at their inaugural MR8-K, A Run for Gratitude, 5-mile road race in Downtown Boston. The run began on Legends Way in the shadows of the TD Garden before winding through the city and concluding as the first ever road race to use the Bruins center ice as the finish line. The event was put together in partnership with the TD Garden, the Boston Bruins Foundation and Dave McGillivray Sports Enterprises to honor first responders by raising funds for the LEADER Program at McLean Hospital. The program was created in 2013 to help members of law enforcement, fire and EMS deal with any issues or struggles they may be facing as a result of the challenges of their work. Commissioner Gross was on hand to greet the runners as they finished and thanked each of them for their support for first responders in our city and across the Commonwealth.
