BPD in the Community: Officers from D14 and Community Members Kayaking on the Charles River

BPD in the Community: About 10 years ago, BPD District D-14 (Brighton) Community Service Officer Frank Hughes started the “Road to the Right Track” program for Allston/Brighton neighborhood youth. Over the years, many children from the from the community signed up to participate in a series of physical fitness challenges, healthy living discussions, and a mentoring program. Since then, the program has grown for kids who get together to work out two days a week year-round, and meet once a month to hear from guest speakers and learn about various topics including, staying away from drugs and alcohol, and making smart life choices.

Last night, the D-14 officers took the kids kayaking on the Charles River. For more information on this program, please contact District 14 at 617-343-4260.
