“I want to thank Bianca and Megan. After I started coming here to the All Bright Community Center for Coffee Hour and then taking Financial Coaching, everything in my life started falling into place.” - Shirley A. Shirley A. has been a part of the Allston Brighton community for over 17 years. In her young 30 years of life she has had her fair share of challenges. Her 9 year old son Evan was born with cerebral palsy and epilepsy. and when he was just 3 years old, his dad died in a tragic car crash, leaving Shirley as the sole caretaker for their son. In early 2018, after a few one-on-one sessions through the Resident Services Goal Getters financial coaching program, Shirley maximized her income by landing a pre-school teacher position! Now she’s even more motivated and on to fulfilling her next goals, building her credit and getting a bigger apartment!!! Economic mobility, education and wealth building are essential in breaking the cycle of intergenerational poverty. - PEOPLE OF ABCDC #pplofabcdc #allston #brightonma

The Spring 2018 Restaurant Opening Guide: North Shore

Another restaurant is moving from Lowell Street to Main Street, too: The NexMex Thing, a Mexican restaurant that opened in early 2017, is moving from 14 Lowell St. to a larger space at 75 Main St.

The Pickering Wharf seafood restaurant is making a small move from 86 Wharf St. to 76 Wharf St., the former Victoria Station space, which will give it about 1,000 extra square feet. Finz has been in its current location for close to two decades.

    The Spring 2018 Restaurant Opening Guide: North Shore
    Winter 2017-2018 saw a few restaurant openings on the North Shore - two Somerville restaurants expanded to Salem, Beverly got a poke restaurant, a North Shore doughnut pop-up landed a Newburyport storefront, and more. But spring is looking a little busier, from the debut of a "food truck emporium" in Lynn to the expansion of Superfine from Manchester to Marblehead.

Harvard Square added an event.

On April 29, 2018, the starting gun will go off for the first inclusive 5K race in Harvard Square that recognizes the resilience and tenacity of disabled athletes while celebrating the recent advances in science and technology that are ushering in a new bionic age, according to race director and Cambridge resident, Will Borden. It’s called the Bionic5K and two of the three race founders are amputees. One is the world’s leading scientist in biomechatronics, one is an elementary school teacher, and one has staged and directed six 5K races in Harvard Square from 2011-2016. Borden elaborates, “The 5K is the #1 race distance in the United States. In 2016, 17,000 5K races were held in the US with over 8.2 million finishers. Typical races include one or two disabled athletes in a large crowd of participants. We believe we can do something different.” “By assembling a critical mass of amputee and disabled runners, we can break down barriers and normalize the experience of running alongside people with significant adaptations. In addition, by shining a light on the recent advances in science, technology and rehabilitation medicine, we can engage and inspire a broader group of people as volunteers, runners and supporters, building awareness of the incredible strides that are being made to end disability as we know it today,” adds Borden. “Ultimately, we hope that this truly inclusive race will not only bring different types of runners together but also bring new people into the running community - encouraging those who might ordinarily shy away from a 5k because of disability to join our group of all ages and abilities in celebrating possibilities over disabilities,” Borden added. Contact Will Borden directly, info@bionic5K 617-520-5213 For more information and registration, please go to: bionic5K.com.
