Make a difference while you run!
The Running for Innocence team offers an amazing way to directly engage in the fight against wrongful convictions. By joining the team, you become part of a community of runners who are committed to making a difference for innocence. Runners commit to help the New England Innocence Project by raising funds to pay for the experts and investigators needed to help give the more than 40 men and women whose cases NEIP is currently reviewing a fighting chance to prove their innocence and to successfully reenter our community when they achieve their freedom.
Our 2018 upcoming runs are now posted!
The easiest way to get started is to join Running for Innocence for one of our upcoming team events. Our 2018 running schedule has just been posted, and includes the Newburyport River Run 5K/Half Marathon (May 6, 2018) and the Lexington Genesis Battlegreen 5K/10K Run (November 4, 2018). We are also in the process of planning our first full length marathon as a team, the Baystate Marathon (October 21, 2018). Whatever the distance, we welcome your participation in our team!
