Charitable Walks

Boston College's Charitable walk campaign marches on this year as we continue to incorporate BC's mission of being "men and women for others" into our HEALTHY YOU program.

Join fellow BC employees in a walk for one of the following great causes! To join a team, please contact a Team Leader listed below. They will assist you with the registration process.  All participants will receive a complementary BC t-shirt. T-shirts will be distributed by Team Leaders on the day of the walk. Please note that any registration fees and/or fundraising requirements are to be incurred by participants.

We are still looking for Team Leaders for a few of the walks. If you are interested in being the Team Leader, please contact Suzanne Lawler at Team Leaders function as the point person for their walk, under the team name "Boston College HEALTHY YOU team.” In addition to receiving a complimentary BC t-shirt, Team Leaders will also receive a BC baseball cap.

While steps will only be counted towards the WAC competition from charitable walks that fall between Oct-Nov and Apr-May, all participants receive the benefit of getting exercise and walking for a good cause!


If you would like to recommend a preferred charitable walk that you do not see on this list, please email all details of the walk to Suzanne Lawler at, for consideration.
