The McCourt Foundation in partnership with Reebok is proud to announce the First Annual Waterfront Fitness Festival and Expo. The goal is to create an event where community businesses, organizations, and individuals can build stronger community bonds and support for their worthy missions. The McCourt Foundation was founded with the mission to help patients and families living with neurological diseases through research, education and financial assistance. Over the past few years the foundation has broadened its reach by partnering with additional health-related organizations to help even more people in need.
Join us for this family-friendly event which will include adult and kids races and a Reebok-led athletic event on the scenic Boston Waterfront. This event will also feature an Expo at the Massport Flynn Cruise Port with live entertainment by Dalton & the Sheriffs, awards ceremony, Harpoon Beer Garden, activities and games for the whole family and Boston’s best restaurant tasting stations.
