Official Charity Program

The Official Charity Program provides runners with the chance to make their participation mean a little bit more, as they help improve the lives of women and children in our area.

As the first all-women’s sporting event in New England, we believe in our philanthropic responsibility to support the communities of women which have supported us for more than 40 years. Through our Official Charity Program, we’ve selected a few groups helping women and runners to showcase, promote, and facilitate financial contributions from our participants.

2021 Groups

Black Girls RUN!

The mission of Black Girls RUN! is to encourage ALL (especially African-American women) to make fitness and healthy living a priority. For their involvement this year, Black Girls RUN! will contribute funds raised through the 10K for Women towards Sole Train: Boston Runs Together, a program of Trinity Boston Foundation.

Dana-Farber Cancer Institute

Dana-Farber’s Susan F. Smith Center for Women’s Cancers tailors to the unique needs of women, providing state-of-the-art individualized treatment for patients facing breast and gynecologic cancers.

Dream Big!

Helping girls and young women from low‑income situations achieve their dreams by providing equipment, sports attire, program fees and leadership training for participation in sports and physical activities.

Stride for Stride

Providing everyone an equal opportunity to run by purchasing race bibs for runners who are financially unable to do so. There’s no reason why money should prevent runners from getting to the starting line.
