A HEALTHY PART OF THE COMMUNITY FOR OVER 150 YEARS
At The Dimock Center, we’ve spent hundreds of years getting to know the people, the patients, the families and the needs of the community around us. As our community has grown and changed, so have we. With an acute focus on assessing the community’s needs, we create programs and build capacity for services that will inform the success of our entire patient and client population. Our partnership with HoodFit and the B.A.A. helps extend our reach within the community, enhancing our mission to heal and uplift individuals and families in Roxbury and surrounding areas.
A NOTE FROM HOODFIT
HoodFit is built on the belief that within our communities there are unsung assets, gifts and benefits that bring strength. We are thrilled to partner with The Dimock Center and the Boston Athletic Association. What better collaboration than the power of community health and a city-wide powerhouse of expertise? We are proud to have revived the Roxbury 5K in 2014, after more than three decades of dormancy, and are excited to be an active partner toward amplifying the gifts of our community.
A NOTE FROM THE B.A.A.

Since 1887, the mission of the B.A.A. has been to promote health and fitness in our community, especially through running, and this echoes the mission and goals of this event.
