Thank you so much to everyone on our 2017 Boston Marathon Team. A special thanks to Emily Casey for being the first member of the team and for giving us the push we needed to put our first team together. Thank you to the Boston Fire Department for their help securing the bibs for our team and to Susan Hurley at Charity Teams for all of her help with training for the team. For spectators the marathon is a 1-day event, but for these amazing runners it is a 20+ week commitment with hours of training for the big day.

Thank you to all who made donations to support the team. Your generosity will be put to good use to help children in need. In part, your donation will help support “Camp Walsh” at the Oak Square YMCA in Brighton. The financial assistance provided by the Ed Walsh Foundation allows the Y to provide youth programs to low-income families in the community. We are honored to be able to lend a hand to a place that meant so much to Ed. His smile lit up the Oak Square YMCA every day that he worked there and your generous donation helps spread that smile to the children who spend the summer there at Camp Walsh.
