The West Suburban YMCA Runs Boston

Meet our 2022 Boston Marathon Runner!

We are thrilled to receive a Boston Marathon invitational bib from the City of Newton for one runner to train for the 2022 Boston Marathon while raising funds for the West Suburban YMCA. This year's event will take place on Monday, April 18, 2022. 

This year, Christie Caporale-Bilotto will wear the West Suburban YMCA’s bib and run the historic route from Hopkinton to Boston. Not only does she get the unique opportunity to participate in one of the most selective marathons in the country but she is also giving back at the same time. Christie has committed to raising $7,500 for our Annual Fund. All funds raised will go straight to our financial aid program, enabling children and adults of all ages to build confidence, foster healthy habits, and be part of our nurturing community, regardless of their economic circumstances.

2022 Boston Marathon Runner

"I’m so excited to announce that I’ll be running this year’s Boston Marathon on behalf of the West Suburban YMCA!

Not only do I get this unique opportunity to participate in one of the most selective marathons in the country, but I’m also helping to raise funds for the West Suburban Y, an organization that holds a special place in my heart. When first moving to the Boston area seven years ago, I was so lucky to be hired as part of the administrative team and to have the opportunity to see up close and personal the impact that the organization has on youth, seniors, and the greater community. I also found my own community. The Y has become an integral part of my personal life - from teaching yoga, to my children’s participation in the Y’s preschool, swim lessons, soccer, basketball and camp; to my husband serving on the board of directors, to all of the amazing people I have met and the friendships that have formed along the way… I’m so honored to be running for the West Suburban YMCA! 100% of dollars donated go to the Y’s financial aid program, enabling children and adults of all ages to build confidence, foster healthy habits, and be part of our nurturing community, regardless of their economic circumstances.

Over the next 12 weeks, I’ll be in training to physically make it over the finish line on Marathon Monday. Can you - my friends, family, and community of supporters- help me and the West Suburban YMCA reach the fundraising finish line?!"
