Share, email, print, bookmark SOURCE reports.

FRAMINGHAM – Hoops and Homework is absolutely thrilled to be participating in the 2022 Boston Marathon  as a charity. We are the only licensed, neighborhood based after-school and summer school program in Framingham. Our initial funding came from Town Meeting in 2012 . We have been in operation since then, in the lowest income sections of the City.  All of our students attend the programs on scholarships provided by our outstanding donors.

Our runners have promised to raise at least $4,000 each for the privilege of running the race.

You can help them reach their goal by visiting our website: Search:  Google  for Hoops and Homework Framingham.

You can actually listen to each runner talk about why they are supporting Hoops and Homework.  They have some very heartwarming stories.  Search : YouTube for Hoops and Homework Marathon runner.

Their efforts are sincerely appreciated by our most deserving kids who live in two of Framingham’s lowest income neighborhoods.

Please realize that runners are very special people who endure extreme training and race conditions.  This is what happened in 2018 and could happen again.

It was so brutal out there, It was cold and raw. Even before the race started, the runners were huddled together trying to keep warm and dry.  

Dozens of runners may have had hypothermia or were overwhelmed by the frigid rain, wind and cold; some just called it a day before they reached the finish line.

So Please help out our runners and thank you!
