Sole Train: Boston Runs Together

Run. Connect. Believe.

The mission of Sole Train: Boston Runs Together is to inspire and empower youth to realize their potential. Sole Train: Boston Runs Together is an initiative of the Trinity Boston Foundation, a 501.c.3 organization affiliated with Trinity Church (Copley Square). Sole Train receives essential financial support from the Trinity Boston Foundation. Sole Train takes a holistic approach to the mind and body and believes that instilling an understanding of this connection helps youth succeed. We also aim to increase nutritional education by providing healthy meals and underscoring the value of exercise and a balanced diet.

"...Sole Train: Boston Runs Together is in its third season and larger and mightier than ever! Our hope is to one day offer this fantastic (and fun!) opportunity to learn about community, commitment, physical and mental well-being, and true potential to every teenager in Boston. Your support can help make this pipe-dream a possibility and an amazing reality!"

-Jess Leffler (Sole Train Director)

Teams:

The first Sole Train team formed at Trinity Boston Foundation in 2009. As Sole Train grows, we expect teams to form at other non-profit organizations, at schools and within faith communities. Our goal in raising funds for Trinity Boston Foundation and Sole Train: Boston Runs Together is to continue to grow the program to the point where eventually all Boston teenagers have access to such an opportunity.

Strategy:

Sole Train: Boston Runs Together’s strategy is simple. Youth and adult mentors train together to run the Boston Athletic Association’s Half Marathon, which takes place on Columbus Day Weekend every October. The emphasis is not on running a competitive time. Rather, we focus on the following strategic goals:

  • Increasing confidence, resilience and self esteem through the achievement of a seemingly impossible goal
  • Learning and embodying healthy habits beginning with exercise and nutrition.
  • Building a safe, supportive community of youth and adults that believes in the potential of every member.
  • Connecting youth to other supports as needed (i.e. academic, mental health)
  • Expanding the sense of possibility for youth who may not have explored their city or met adults from other neighborhoods.
  • Celebrating and affirming our personal and collective accomplishments.

The mission of the Trinity Boston Foundation is to change the odds for Boston youth. The Foundation pursues that mission by offering innovative programs that empower youth and families, increase collaboration and coordination within the non-profit sector and build public appetite and will to create positive, lasting, social change.
