Jamaica Plain Benefit Fun Run to Raise $ for Immigrant Advocates on June 24

A free fundraising fun run to benefit the Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition (MIRA) is expected to draw hundreds to Jamaica Pond on June 24. The event is being organized by Jamaica Plain nonprofit Boston For All, a local coalition dedicated to strengthening community bonds and raising money for organizations working to preserve rights. Boston for All was founded in 2016 by Jamaica Plain neighbors determined to raise money for civil liberties organizations in the wake of the presidential election. Since then, the group has hosted the first wildly popular Run for All, two sold-out ‘Rock For All’ community concerts and a Dining for a Difference restaurant week. The group raised more than $14,000 for the ACLU in 2017 and more than $6,000 for the Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition so far in 2018.
