The Second Annual MR8K: A Run For Gratitude
The MR8K: A Run For Gratitude was established in 2018 to reflect the spirit of the Martin Richard Foundation by honoring first responders and their families, granting all proceeds of the first annual race to the LEADER program based at McLean Hospital.
The Martin Richard Foundation helps young people to learn, grow and lead through volunteerism and community engagement. The values of kindness, unity and service to others have become the pillars of this organization that is focused on building a more compassionate community through a new generation of leaders. Team MR8, named for Martin’s initials and sports number, is the fundraising program and main source of income for the Martin Richard Foundation. When runners join Team MR8, they commit support to an organization that is anchored in promoting sportsmanship, inclusion, kindness, and peace through programs that reflect civic engagement and youth development.
