The Greater Boston Chapter is honored to have received the 2012 Chapter of the Year-Large Market Award at our Leadership Conference in Houston on January 26th.
In 2012, Boston hosted successful Walks, Events and Research Town Hall programs which were recognized at the Leadership Conference.
#2 Walk in the Country- Greater Boston
The Boston Walk brought in $270,000 with close to 2000 walkers last year. We were the second top grossing walk out of the 270 walks hosted around the country. Amazing. 2013 is Boston's 10th Walk year so we're going to be hosting the biggest walk yet. Stay tuned!
Top First Year Walk- South Shore/Cape Cod Walk
The South Shore/Cape Cod Walk raised over $45,000 on their first year. Congratulations and thank you to Carole Williamson, Heather Anderson and their entire Walk Committee.
Outstanding Non Walk Fundraiser- A Sip in the Park
Our inaugural A Sip in the Park raised $51,000 and is now an AFSP signature event. Other chapters will be hosting A Sip in the coming years based on the program we designed. Congratulations to David O"Leary and Kate Eisenberg and our amazing committee for their hard work and amazing success!
Outstanding Support for Research
