About Team Brookline 

Team Brookline is the Town of Brookline’s official Boston Marathon team. Established in 2012 by the Town and managed by Brookline Community Mental Health Center, the team benefits four local charities that play an integral role in strengthening and enriching our community: Brookline Community Mental Health Center, Brookline Education Foundation, Brookline Library Foundation, and Brookline Teen Center. Since the program’s inception, Team Brookline runners have raised more than $650,000 – an amazing accomplishment that has made a true impact in the lives of all who live, work and study in Brookline.
