My Story

I’m running in the 2018 Boston Marathon on behalf of Hale Reservation. Their programs are closing the achievement
gap by working with students who otherwise may never have access to outdoor learning opportunities.

Hi! I'm Stephen Murphy and am running to support Hale. Hale resonates with me because I've experienced the benefits of being outside and all the lessons nature has to teach. Growing up playing outdoors carved me into the individual I am today and I'm still reaping the benefits of Mother Nature's teachings. Furthermore, I've lost two individuals near and dear to me that cherished living outside. One of my closest college friends Meg was enamored with being outside especially for a good hike or a long run. I also had the pleasure of meeting Kirk who regularly challenged himself and found himself in the wild expanse. I'm positive that if they were still with us, they'd support the proliferation of educational and recreational opportunities that Hale extends to underprivileged youths.
With their strength and your support I'm confident I'll be able to reach my fundraising goals and complete dream of finishing the Boston Marathon all while supporting a phenomenal cause.

I've created this page because I want to make a difference. I'm inspired by the work of HALE RESERVATION INC and wanted to support them by raising money. Please help me help them by giving whatever you can using the 'Give Now' button. The more people that know about HALE RESERVATION INC, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means the world!

Team Hale 2018

Team Hale’s athletes will run in the 122nd Boston Marathon on April 16, 2018. Their fundraising efforts support two programs focused on Boston Public Schools (BPS) students: Hale Outdoor Learning Adventures (HOLA) and Intrepid Academy.

HOLA campers are part of the 5th Quarter of Learning initiative, a public-private partnership that provides summer learning opportunities to Boston students. HOLA seeks to prevent summer learning loss, encourage academic gains and healthy physical activity, and develop social-emotional skills during the summer months so students are ready to begin the next grade in the fall.

Hale’s newest initiative, Intrepid Academy, will open in January 2018. This outdoor semester school will break down the walls of conventional schools, get BPS juniors outside, and enable them to earn traditional course credits through a nontraditional, active educational experience.

Experiences like HOLA and Intrepid Academy are often limited to more affluent populations. At Hale, we are closing the opportunity gap by working with students who otherwise may never have access to such programs. We know that time actively spent outdoors leads to mental stimulation, has numerous health benefits, and is paramount for development.
