Boston Arts Academy is now in our second year of a three-year relationship with the Boston Athletic Association as an official charity of the Boston Marathon… We have a dynamic team of 15 running the marathon on Monday, April 16- they have already raised over $70,000 toward their goal of $100,000!
Three of our runners come from the immediate Boston Arts Academy community: Adan Colon-Carmona, father of an 11th grade dancer; Kevin Dua, teacher intern from Boston College; and Rick Tagliaferri, Executive Director of the Boston Arts Academy Foundation (now running his second marathon for the school!) You can click here to see a listing of our marathon runners by name and learn about their reasons for running for Boston Arts Academy.
We recently had a pep rally to support the marathon team, which also featured Boston Arts Academy’s newly formed student running team, the Rockets- part of our Artist Fitness initiative. Thank you to Jossie Mar Diaz (BAA ’06), Duncan Remage-Healey of the Boston Arts Academy foundation, and Student Activities Coordinator Deidre O’Halloran for their work organizing this event!
