Hale in Towne | February 28
Young professionals who believe in connecting kids with the outdoors convened in Boston’s Back Bay, where they socialized and networked with other like-minded colleagues at Towne Stove and Spirits.
Marathon Reunion | April 17
Past runners joined this year’s team at Doyle’s Jamaica Plain to celebrate their collective success. Together they raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for, and increased awareness of, Hale’s work to close the achievement, nature, and summer learning gaps.
Sunset at the Peak | June 2
Our second event for young professionals was an opportunity to experience Hale after hours. A guided sunset hike to Powissett Peak offered views of the surrounding woodlands (and even the Boston skyline) from the highest point at Hale. Afterward, attendees socialized with acquaintances old and new at a BYOB 21+ post-hike campfire.
