The Martin Richard Foundation works to advance the values of inclusion, kindness, justice and peace. We invest in community programs that broaden horizons for young people and encourage them to celebrate diversity and engage in positive civic action.
The Foundation invests in community building by making grants to organizations that work toward diversity, inclusion and social justice through collective action and through programs that ensure the dignity, safety and well-being of all. We are honored to name the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute a Legacy Partner and support their work in the community and beyond. MRF is a proud Peace Seeker Sponsor for the 2020 Mother's Day Virtual Walk-A-Thon For Peace.

REGISTER TO WALK ON MARTIN RICHARD'S TEAM TODAY.  (Choose Martin Richard at the prompt to credit a fundraiser.)
Walkers of all abilities and ages are welcome on Martin's team. This year, we navigate our own individual walks as part of a Virtual Walk-a-thon due to the COVID-19 pandemic but we remain together in spirit as we help people on the road toward healing. Send a selfie of yourself walking with a face covering to Denise and we will create a team collage!
 
As Dorchester residents, Denise and the kids participated in the Walk for Peace in the early years as walking was the right thing to do - If there were moms in our community who were grieving and praying for peace, we felt the need to bear witness and lend our voices. As a mom, Denise felt inspired by the Peace Institute's belief that every life matters; and that every mother deserves respect and dignity and the right to feel loved and supported by her community in time of grief. There was no way of knowing that the same community and the Peace Institute would extend the same level of love and support upon Martin's death in 2013 at the Boston Marathon.
 
 
 
 
ABOUT 2020 Mothers Day Walk for Peace

Every year in the United States, approximately 15,000 people are murdered. For every homicide victim, there are at least 10 immediate people directly impacted by that loss. It is safe to say each year there are at least 150,000 new survivors of homicide victims dealing with the emotional, physical and financial stress of losing a loved one to a traumatic death such as murder. This is not including extended family members, classmates/colleagues, teachers/students or entire communities. Nor does this number include families who are impacted by a loved one committing a murder. Together, we can heal and have an impact. 

The Annual Mother’s Day Walk for Peace started in 1996 so mothers of murdered children could receive support and love from their neighbors. Twenty-four years later, the Mother’s Day Walk for Peace continues to be a powerful way to honor our loved ones who have been murdered and embrace our partners in peacemaking. The Mother’s Day Walk for Peace  is also the Peace Institute’s largest fundraising event. We hope you will help us raise our goal of $400,000. This way toward healing!

Important COVID-19 Pandemic Update:

The Mother’s Day Walk for Peace will still take place, as a virtual walkathon. While we may not be able to gather physically on Mother’s Day, you have proven year after year how deeply you care about the communities we serve -- Survivors of Homicide Victims, their families, and neighbors. Your help ensures that the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute’s critical services, advocacy and training continue to meet the immediate and evolving needs of survivors. When you reach your goal it ensures that the Peace Institute has the financial resources necessary to transform society’s response to homicide during this unprecedented crisis.

Registration cost this year is $20 per person, however no one will be turned away for lack of funds. Registration fees go to help us reach our goal of $400,000 to sustain our services, advocacy and training.
