The 4th Annual MR8K* is scheduled for December 4 at Boston Landing in Brighton, MA. The Boston Arts Academy Alumni Network invites you to register to complete the 8K in person ($45) or virtually ($25) under Team Boston Arts Academy:

This is a great opportunity to connect with other BAA community members and to support two great causes: The Martin Richard Foundation and Boston Arts Academy.

The Martin Richard Foundation is also offering a Challenge Grant between now and December 3.

What is the Challenge Grant, and why should I care?

Team Boston Arts Academy must recruit at least 50 people to join our team to receive a $5,000 grant for BAA from the Martin Richard Foundation.

In addition, the team with the most participants will receive an additional $5,000. If Team Boston Arts Academy recruits the most participants, we may be eligible for a total of $10,000!

Register now!
