Boston Marathon 2016

With spring on our minds and the Boston Marathon around the corner, we wanted to share with you our charity for the spring. We are happy to be supporting our friend, Tricia Dillion, in the 2016 Boston Marathon. The months of March and April we will be donating a portion of our profits from retail sales to Tricia, running for TeamMR8, in honor of Martin Richard. She is raising money for the Martin Richard Foundation. Tricia is an active member in her Dorchester community where the Richard family resides. This is Tricia’s second year running the Boston Marathon for Team MR8! Go Tricia!

The Martin Richard Foundation is a charitable foundation formed by the parents of eight-year-old Martin Richard, who was killed in the bombing at the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013. After his death, a photo of Martin holding a handmade poster that read “No more hurting people, Peace” was shared over the Internet and touched the hearts of many. The Martin Richard Foundation will honor Martin’s message of “No More Hurting People- peace” by investing in education, athletics and community.
