Marathon Team

Meet the 2018 Plummer Youth Promise Boston Marathon Team

Amy Cutler
Amy Cutler is a long-time volunteer at Plummer Youth Promise. She’ll be running her 8th Boston Marathon this year (her 5th one for Plummer!). Amy is running, as she explains, “to turn miles into hope for Plummer youth…I’m incredibly fortunate because I know no matter how far I venture and no matter how grueling the journey back might be, my home and my family are always waiting for my return. Everyone deserves that certainty, especially children.”

Ed Fogarty
Ed Fogarty works for Bon Appetit Management Company. He’ll be running his 1st Boston Marathon this year for Plummer Youth Promise. Ed is running because his family and friends have adopted children through foster care, and as he says, “We know that children who come into care can have complicated social, emotional and health care needs. Meeting those needs requires dedicated and trained professionals who understand those needs and can develop child centric/specific integrated plans involving the child, the families (natural and foster), school or work and the community.”

Raica Mirza
Raica Mirza attends Simmons College in Boston and works at Brigham and Women's Hospital. She’ll be running her 1st Boston Marathon this year for Plummer Youth Promise. Raica is running because, as she explains, “I babysit for a family that adopted both of their daughters…These girls are the light of my life and I care very deeply about them…I run for kids like them. I am personally touched by Plummer’s mission, and running for this charity means spreading the word and letting the community know just how much good it is doing!”
