Miles & Memories Marathon Team
The Children’s Room is now accepting applications for our 2016 Miles & Memories Team! The deadline for applications has been extended until Friday, November 6, 2015.
6 Bib Numbers Available
Thanks to the generosity of the John Hancock Non-Profit Marathon Program, TCR has 6 bibs for the 2016 Boston Marathon. We are looking for 6 energetic, committed individuals to run and fundraise to support TCR’s hope-giving programs.
Each year our Marathon Team plays a crucial role in raising much-needed funds to support TCR’s services for grieving children, teens, and families. Runners receive ongoing support from The Children’s Room in reaching their fundraising goals.
Over the past six years our marathon team has raised over $433,800 for The Children’s Room!
Already have a bib number?
You can still join TCR’s Miles & Memories Marathon Team! Running the Boston Marathon is already an incredible experience – make it even more meaningful by supporting grieving families while you prepare to cross the finish line.
Be a part of TCR events leading up to the 2015 Marathon and train alongside fellow TCR teammates. Many of TCR’s runners in the past have found it meaningful to run in memory or honor of someone special to them.
If you already have a bib and are interested in joining TCR’s 2015 Marathon Team, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 781-641-4741.

CONGRATULATIONS to our 2015 Boston Marathon Team
All six of TCR’s Marathon runners crossed the finish line on Marathon Monday!
Every step of their 26.2 mile accomplishment was made to support children, teens, and families who have experienced the death of an immediate family member. We are so grateful for and amazed by their dedication to making a difference in the lives of grieving families. Check out TCR’s Facebook page to see photos from Marathon Monday!

Kate ran in memory of her son’s father.
“Centers of support, like the Children’s Room, are so critical to families like ours. The Children’s Room offers its services free of charge in a warm, welcoming, loving environment.”
“As a previous attendee of The Children’s Room, I know firsthand as to how important these programs are for young children and their families… I cannot imagine how different my life would be now if I hadn’t have gone to The Children’s Room when I was younger.”
“As I continue to train through the months of cold days and even longer runs, all the people who have had someone in their lives who has lost someone will be running through my mind. My husband will be training with me, knowing that my race will be helping the healing process for many others.”
“I knew TCR would be a place where we would be understood without words, a place where you could cry, be angry, vent – and believe it or not – laugh! A place where everyone just ‘gets’ you the way you are. It has been so beneficial for me and most importantly my children who get to interact with other children who have suffered the same devastating loss.”
Steph ran in memory of her dad, who died when she was 4 years old. This is her 3rd year running the Boston Marathon for TCR, and she is serving as Team Captain.
“Through my 7 years and counting of volunteering with 3-5 year olds I am constantly amazed by their ability to support each other… There is a level of openness and comfort talking about loss and grief at The Children’s Room that teaches children and families the important lesson that no one needs to grieve alone.”
Lauren ran in memory of her mother – her best friend and biggest hero.
“By helping me reach my fundraising goal, you’re providing support to families facing the devastating loss of a parent or child, and you’re helping me remember a mother who lived for her family.”
