It is impossible to name all the people who came together to make this year’s Boston Bulldogs Run for Recovery such an inspiring celebration of a community coming together to support wellness in recovery -- and to embrace the memory of those who have been lost to addiction and their loved ones. We welcomed over 500 registered runners, more than 60 registered volunteers, 30+ tables representing local businesses and recovery programs – and friends and family supporting all of the above. And, for the 3rd year in a row, we beat back the rain clouds.
Mayor Marty Walsh joined us for the Tribute following the race, and wowed the crowd with his most genuine and heartfelt remarks about recovery and community. He lingered afterwards to shake hands, take photos, talk with people, listen to their stories – it was a highlight for the Club and we were honored to have him in attendance.
To our sponsors who made the day possible – lead sponsors Bournewood Health Systems and Cabot Corporation along with City Realty, the Dodo Classic and the MJW Charitable Foundation.
Barrett & Singal, Beacon Hill Athletic Clubs, CleanSlate, the Gavin Foundation and Marathon Sports rounded out the list of supporters who make this event possible. Thanks to our partners in the Mayor’s Office of Recovery Services and a special thanks to NESN Connects for all they do to support the Boston Bulldogs.
This year’s Festival included more than 20 recovery programs, joined by local businesses whose generous donations nourished the crowd. And where would be without the volunteers who showed up in record numbers and worked tirelessly with enthusiasm and dedication. Finally, thanks to all the runners, virtual and real who participated in this year's race. Congratulations to this year's overall winners David Chorney and Lindsay Weigl - and a big Bulldogs shout out to under 10 first place winners Finley Long and Neve Flynn.
In the end, it takes a village -- and a village it was on Sunday.
We are humbled, grateful, beyond excited about the support for the Boston Bulldogs and for wellness in recovery.
