Team MR8: Run for Richard Martin

From the website:

The Martin W. Richard Charitable Foundation Inc., is a 501(c)(3) charitable foundation formed by the parents of eight-year-old Martin Richard, who was killed at the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15, 2013.

In the days after the bombing, a photo of Martin holding a handmade poster that read “No more hurting people – Peace” went global and made many see Martin as a symbol of peace.  Martin Richard’s view of peace went well beyond simply wanting to prevent violence.  To Martin, peace meant things like togetherness, teamwork, fairness, sportsmanship, inclusion, and the prevention of bullying.

Martin was an 8-year-old boy who loved learning, sports and the world around him.  He participated in the BAA Children’s Relay on Marathon weekend for three consecutive years.  He was a school peacemaker and recognized at a young age that while we are all different, we are all the same.  The way Martin saw the world anything was possible.
