Youth Enrichment Services

Four Spots Available on Team YES Boston Marathon 2019

Are you a runner who would like to take on the Boston Marathon? Do you have a passion for the outdoors and helping youth achieve their full potential?

Youth Enrichment Services (YES) received four (4) official numbers as part of the 2019 John Hancock Marathon Non-Profit Program.

APPLY NOW: If you would like to join the YES 2019 Boston Marathon team and run 26.2 miles for YES youth, please contact Bryan Van Dorpe at bvandorpe@yeskids.org for an application. The selected runners will have expert support with both fundraising and training. Runners must fund-raise $10,000 or more in exchange for a bib. Deadline to apply is Friday, October 19.

Last year’s 2018 Boston Marathon team raised over $40,000 which gave Boston youth access to essential enrichment and leadership programming at YES. YES programs offer Boston youth new experiences in the outdoors and through career exploration and college preparation, helping them build confidence and the leadership skills necessary to succeed in school, work, and life.

If you have qualified for the Boston Marathon or have obtained a bib number through another source and would like to run for YES, contact us a bvandorpe@yeskids.org.

Why should you run the Boston Marathon for Youth Enrichment Services? Ask some of our previous marathon runners:

“I decided to run the Boston Marathon for YES because I want to give Boston youth new character-building experiences and empower future generations with an appreciation of the great outdoors, physical play, and nature.”                                                                                                                                    -Stephen Nock, 2017 Boston Marathon team

“I was incredibly lucky when I was able to join Youth Enrichment Services’ marathon team. I felt so supported the entire time. I did not and could not do this alone. Thank you for donating to a cause that is making serious change for deserving youth.”                                                                                                    -Sayles Day, 2018 Boston Marathon team

 

A big thank you to John Hancock for supporting Team YES!
