The YMCA of Greater Boston is pleased to announce our 2018 Boston Marathon Team. As one of Boston’s leading social service agencies promoting healthy living and athletic achievement for all for more than 160 years, we are proud to take part in this historic race. 

Our team consists of returning runners Joanna Murphy and Lindsey McElligott, and new runners, Telis Bertsekas, Kimberly Smith and Kara Napolitano

What will funds raised from the Y team support?

  • All funds raised by Y Marathon team members will support YMCA of Greater Boston Teen Programs. Check out our Teen Facebook Page and YMCA of Greater Boston Twitter.

  • This past summer the YMCA of Greater Boston handed out almost 15,000 free 3 month memberships to teens at our 13 branches with unlimited access. Most (almost all) teen programs that the YMCA offers are free to their community.
