Olivia Frank's Boston Marathon Run for Friendly Aid
On a very rainy and windy Boston Marathon day (now known as the "Monsoon Marathon"), Olivia Frank ran as a charity runner on Friendly Aid's behalf. We're so impressed that she finished the race in those awful conditions!
Olivia grew up in Wellesley, and her family is still very involved in the community. The funds that Olivia has raised will go toward our Holiday Voucher Program, which provides $40 Roche Bros. gift cards to low income Wellesley residents each November so they can purchase groceries to prepare holiday meals. Friendly Aid distributed these gift cards to 209 households and individuals in 2017.
Thank you, Olivia! Another example of "neighbors helping neighbors."
