Print Friendly, PDF & Email

  Everett Police Sgt. Robert Hall will once again be running in this year’s Boston Marathon on April 18, joined by his daughter Rachael and her boyfriend Dominic Monzione. This will be Hall’s 11th year running the storied course which spans from Hopkinton to Boston. It also marks his 20th marathon overall since 2009. In addition, this will be Rachael’s third Boston Marathon and Monzione’s first time running the race.

  As with prior years, Hall will be running to raise money to benefit Cops for Kids with Cancer. “It’s a great cause,” he said, adding that much of his support has come from Everett residents. “It’s the best city in the Commonwealth; I want to thank people for their previous support.”

  Hall is looking to raise $12,500 this year. Online donations can be made at https://copsforkidswithcancer.org/bobby-and-rachel-hall-2022/.

  He will also be running in memory of State Police Det. Lt. William Coulter. With more than 45 years of service to the State Police, Coulter competed in 20 Ironman Triathlons and 150 marathons, which included 36 Boston Marathons. A cancer survivor, Coulter was the chairman of Cops for Kids with Cancer and was a member of the Massachusetts State Police Commissioned Officers Association.

  Hall said training six days a week is one of the most difficult parts of the Boston Marathon, which is now in its 126th year. “Maybe this will be my last one,” he said, adding that another challenge comes on race day when tens of thousands of runners gather at the starting line. “There’s a lot of anxiousness.”

  Hall said his favorite part of the course is Mile 17 located just before the famed Newton Hills. “The most enjoyable part is when I see my family at Mile 17,” he said.

  Members of the Everett Police Department have been running in the Boston Marathon since 2013 and have raised more than $100,000 for Cops for Kids with Cancer.

  Established in 2002, Cops for Kids with Cancer has raised more than $4.1 million assisting 762 families with the escalating costs of cancer treatment. Each eligible family typically revives a gift of $5,000.
