Team Bay Cove Goes the Distance!

On a beautiful sunny day, the eight members of Team Bay Cove were among the more than 30,000 runners who took part in the 2017 Boston Marathon. Cheered on by an estimated one million spectators along the route, Leanne Bragdon, Allison Cleary, Charles Hollins, Erik Mancyak, Heather Santymire, Caitlin Shanley, Caryn Metzger Smith and Lauren Spinelli ran the 26.2 miles between Hopkinton and Boston in the 121st edition of the world's oldest and most prestigious marathon.

In the process, our runners raised over $96,000 for Bay Cove's programs, while raising awareness of our vitally important services. They were given the opportunity to do this thanks to the John Hancock Boston Marathon Non-Profit Program.

Please join all of us at Bay Cove in saluting our dedicated runners, who underwent months of grueling training and tirelessly raised funds for our agency because of their belief in Bay Cove's mission and the importance of the services we provide to individuals challenged by developmental disabilities, mental illness, addiction and aging. They are true heroes, and we thank them from the bottom of our hearts for this amazing effort!
