The Edwards Middle School is located in Charlestown, MA. We serve grades 6-8 (11-14 year olds) and the majority of our students are from East Boston, Charlestown, and Dorchester.

This spring, our school is launching a new leadership and running program called Sole Train and we are seeking "Old Soles" to run with our students 1-2 per week for an hour.

Sole Train: Boston Runs Together
  • Is a community building and mentoring program that deconstructs impossible by using running as a vehicle for setting and achieving previously unimaginable goals. As a supportive community of caring adults and peers, Sole Train champions young people as they realize their capacity for greatness.

The program start date will be in February and practices will be held on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3-4pm -- starting at school and the running will be in the neighborhood. The practices will culminate in a 5k run in Boston's Run to Remember.

No previous running experience necessary and volunteering on one or both days is ok!

Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. Thanks for considering us!
