You Can Participate In The Boston Marathon!

There’s still time to donate to Team MR8, a select group of runners, chosen to honor the memory of Martin Richard, an 8-year-old boy who was killed in the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013. On April 21, Team MR8 will run the Marathon to raise funds for the Martin W. Richard Charitable Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established by Martin Richard’s family, and dedicated to promoting peace through investments in education, athletics and community.

Lisa Jackson is a friend of the Richard family, and is one member of Team MR8. Boston Standard Company is proud to support Lisa, Team MR8 and the Martin W. Richard Charitable Foundation in their collective pursuit of this worthy cause. Lisa was chosen from among nearly 300 applicants to run for Team MR8 in this year’s Boston Marathon. Lisa eclipsed her initial goal of raising $9,500 for the Foundation. She adjusted her goal to $16,000 and is close to reaching that milestone.

We invite you to assist Lisa in her fundraising efforts. If you would like to help Lisa honor the memory of Martin Richard, and support the work of the Martin W. Richard Charitable Foundation, please take a moment to make a donation of any amount.
