Congratulations 2017 Next Step Boston Marathon Team!

THEY DID IT! CONGRATULATIONS to Team Next Step Boston Marathon runners Isabel Pett and Liz Vinci for conquering the historic 26.2 mile race on a day where the conditions were incredibly difficult with the high temperatures! Words cant describe how impressed we are with their efforts on the course today both with their remarkable athleticism and gigantic hearts. They stuck together and supported each other throughout the entire marathon. It was inspiring and an absolute thrill to watch these two along the sidelines.

We are so proud of Izzy and Liz and we are honored to partner with such awesome people who worked SO HARD FOR MONTHS to train for this day and to raise a lot money to support our free year-round programs for teens and young adults living with cancer, HIV and rare genetic disorders. These two outstanding individuals just get it and we are so grateful for their tremendous impact on our community. Thank you so much to both runners for representing Next Step out on the course today and congratulations for dominating the 2017 Boston Marathon!
