Boston Marathon Runners Raise $17,600 for Women's Lunch Place


Thank you to the WLP 2019 Boston Marathon Team: Matt Fernandes, Michael Madigan & Michael Donovan!


Women’s Lunch Place had three amazing runners participate in the 2019 Boston Marathon, and we now have three amazing new friends! On the Friday before the Marathon, the runners visited the shelter and stayed for lunch with WLP guests who made signs, thanked the runners and gave them a rousing send off to fuel their marathon run.  

After the WLP  send-off lunch,  Matt wrote to us:   "Occasionally during the training, especially on some of the colder days, I would ask myself what I had gotten myself into, but after coming in and getting a sense for what goes on at WLP and to see how excited some of the women were for us, it really hit home for me and has given me this immense sense of pride and purpose."

Our runners raised over $17,600 to benefit the work of Women’s Lunch Place.  We are very hopeful that Women’s Lunch Place will participate in the 2020 Boston Marathon.
