Team Brookline harnesses the combined powers of sport and teamwork to make a tangible and positive impact in our community. With every race we run and every dollar we raise, we expand access to life-improving resources for everyone who lives, works, and learns in Brookline.
A History of Charity
As one of eight towns along the Boston Marathon route, Brookline has always been granted a number of race entries by the Boston Athletic Association. In 2012, the Town of Brookline established its own official Boston Marathon team and charity program: Team Brookline. Team Brookline has given 200+ runners a chance to participate in this historic race and has raised close to $3 million in support of our five charity partners: the Brookline Center for Community Mental Health, Brookline Education Foundation, Brookline Library Foundation, Brookline Symphony Orchestra, and Brookline Teen Center.
We believe that people are at their best when they come together around shared purpose. We are creating a network of impassioned people, connected through sport, to build a stronger, more unified, and more philanthropic Brookline community.
