The Peabody for Peace 5K invites participants of all abilities to walk/run and support the Martin Richard Foundation.
Martin Richard was one of three people killed during the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings, while the Richard Family and hundreds of others were injured. When a photo of Martin holding a handmade sign that read 'No More Hurting People, Peace' was shared over the Internet, his message created a feeling of unity, kindness and peace. These values have become the pillars of the Martin Richard Foundation which was founded in January 2014.
The Martin Richard Foundation helps young people to learn, grow and lead through volunteerism and community engagement. We look to advance sportsmanship, inclusion, kindness and peace.
