Catholic Charities Boston Receives Donation from Hale Family as Part of $26.2 Million Giving Effort Tied to the Boston Marathon

Catholic Charities Boston is one of 72 organizations who received a donation from Rob Hale and his wife, Karen, as part of a $26.2 million giving effort tied to the Boston Marathon. Hale, co-founder and President of Granite Telecommunications LLC, ran the marathon for the first time on April 15.

This donation will enable Catholic Charities Boston to continue welcoming and serving all those in need with dignity and respect.

“We are incredibly grateful to Robert and Karen Hale for supporting our mission and for helping us to guide those most in need toward lasting self-sufficiency,” said President and CEO, Kelley Tuthill.

“Recognizing the immense impact the fabled Marathon has had on our proud city, we are humbled to be able to make these gifts to wonderful organizations throughout our region that support our community,’’ Hale wrote to us and the other recipients in an email letter sent moments after he crossed the finish line at Copley Square. “Please take and use this gift to further your vital mission. Together we make Boston Strong.”
