Boston Bulldogs Running Club

February 2020
Greetings Bulldogs,

2020 is well underway and we have alot of great news to report!

Together We DO
Twelve Boston Bulldogs are preparing to run the  Boston Marat hon, and raising funds to support the Club's programs. Please take a moment to read their stories - all remarkable - and consider making a donation. If it's too hard to pick one runner, sup port the team! Every dollar supports the Club's mission to promote wellness in recovery!

FREE and open to the public
We are excited  to offer the first 2020 
Wellness Seminar open to Club members and the community at large. On February 25, Dr. Ian Nurse, a well known  Boston area sports chiropractor, will share his expertise on  Injury Prevention & Treatment . The event will be held at the First Parish Church on Walnut Street in Brookline .

Giving Back
The  Giving Back program continues to grow, thanks to the generous help of Club members  and the community at large. Earlier this month, we held a spin class fundraiser at Equinox in Chestnut Hill, with the proceeds going to support an afternoon with the  Junior Bulldogs at the  Italian Home  for Children. 

Some 40 residents of the home - many directly impacted by addiction in their family - were  tr eated  to games, pizza , and new Junior Bulldogs sweatshirts. 
It is a gift to give back to those in our  community , and to receive so much in  return

Just Show Up
Our weekly runs continue to form the core of our programs, with the addition of two new chapter locations in recent months. In addition to offering weekly runs in Cleveland Circle, Plymouth, Scituate and Quincy, we are now in Natick, as well as in Chicago, IL. New runners continue to show up at weekly runs -  with many setting and completing important health and wellness goals. 

Check the Boston Bulldogs website  for specific run times and locations.

Big news - our first Executive Director
Eileen O'Connor joined us on January 1, and will help bring the Bulldogs into our 5th year and beyond. "In the few weeks since she started, Eileen has hit the ground running and is bringing the kind of energy and ideas we need to increase our visibility, grow the organization, and expand our programs," said Mike "Coach" Ferullo. "I'm so excited about this next chapter for the Bulldogs, and I'm thrilled to work with Eileen to expand our reach.

Mark your calendars and register now! 
The 5th annual Run for Recovery 5K & Tribute at Franklin Park is set for May 17, 2020. Spread the word, create a team for your friends and family. Join us for an amazing day honoring the memories of those we've lost, and celebrating wellness in recovery.

The Bulldogs Full Circle Program

Our Full Circle Program is an opportunity for Club members to commit to - and achieve - specific wellness goals. Runners work one-on-one with a wellness sponsor to set goals, and then receive individualized training and support. 

There are two Full Circle levels, with an optional 3rd level - usually a 5K and 10K distance to start, with about 6 weeks in between. Participation in the  Full Circle program is open to all Club members. 

For more information. please contact Meaghan O'Sullivan, Full Circle Coordinator, at .
