Healing Meals Community Project

Marathon 2021

We’re thrilled the races are back under the arches this year as the Eversource Hartford Marathon and Half Marathon is our largest fundraiser.  All of the funds raised support families in a health crisis. Please (put your sneakers on) and help us Nourish with Love so that our clients will continue to receive healing, nutrient-rich meals.

Not a runner, don’t worry, we have something for everyone! This year there are several events to choose from including a Charity 5K (which you can walk, jog or run) and virtual events if you prefer. Or simply fundraise/donate from the comfort of your home!

How would you like to get involved? 

 Register for an Eversource Hartford Marathon Race, choose which event you would like to participate in, and start a fundraising page when your application is approved.

Register to be a Healing Meals volunteer at the Marathon
