Thank you to all who made it to the finish line in support of our 2023 4K Trail Run! On May 24th and May 25th, we hosted 75 corporate teams and over 1,100 total runners on Thompson Island for an evening of friendly competition, community building and a post-race BBQ. Thanks to the generous support of corporate sponsors, individual runners, and dedicated Peer-to-Peer fundraisers, this year's 4K Trail Run raised over $335,000 (and counting!) to benefit outdoor education and experiential learning for Boston Public School, middle school students.
Every dollar raised through this annual fundraising event has gone directly toward supporting Thompson Island Outward Bound's core mission: to provide free, hands-on science learning and social-emotional development to Boston students.

Encourage and incentivize your employees to participate in the fundraising initiative by pledging a matching challenge. The corporate match will be added to the team’s overall fundraising and go toward the team fundraising incentives. Runners can make a direct impact in the life of a Boston Public School student by conducting their own fundraising campaign. It costs $2,300 for one BPS student to participate in our multi-year Connections program. By committing to raise $2,300 you will ensure a student can visit Thompson Island 12 times during their middle school career.
