Middlesex School Virtual 5K

Thank you to everyone in the Middlesex community for your support!

For many years,  the Middlesex School community has volunteered with Heading Home by hosting an “Up & Out”; an event where volunteers end the homelessness of a family living in Heading Home shelters. The volunteers hand -select furnishings, decorations, and household goods for the family’s new apartment, and set up the apartment so that it is move-in-ready and feels like home. At the end of the day, the family arrives at their new home and meets the volunteers who helped make the move-in so special. It is a powerful, emotional, and moving experience that Middlesex volunteers return year after year to participate in, and help disrupt the cycle of homelessness for families in Boston. 

This year, the Middlesex community will not be able to host an “Up & Out” due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but we still recognize that homelessness does not pause during a pandemic. People living in Heading Home shelters need our support now more than ever, and we want to help.

The Middlesex School is hosting a virtual 5k to benefit Heading Home and support our neighbors who are experiencing homelessness. Please consider making a donation or fundraising for Heading Home. We hope you will join us for the virtual race and thank you for your generosity!
