“This year my mom (Heather Quinn) became the Director of Early Childhood Programs at Martha’s Vineyard Community Services. Her work has opened my eyes to the real challenges people face every day in our community. I’m grateful for the opportunity to use my love of running to support MVCS’ programs.”

– Jack Lionette, 2018 Team Member

“I have been well aware of the many areas MVCS supports those around me in my 15 years on this rock of love. But in the past decade it has taken on far more of a personal meaning as several of my close friends and acquaintances have found careers there as Licensed Clinical Social Workers, Domestic Violence therapists and vocational liaisons.  It’s a support those who support you environment! And now I’m here to support them.”
