The Milton Foundation for Education’s mission is to enhance the quality of education and expand educational opportunities within the Milton Public Schools by generating and distributing financial and other resources for such purposes.

  • Promoting community/school partnerships.
  • Raising and distributing funds to all six Milton Public Schools.

Sam’s Fund

The Monster Dash is organized by the Milton Foundation for Education, a non-profit group that funds innovative programs and opportunities that are beyond the reach of the school system’s budget.

The race, held in memory of the Tucker Elementary School student who died following a playground accident in 1999, helps the Milton Public Schools science coordinator undertake hands-on science lessons, train teachers and partner on a number of educational projects.

The MFE created Sam’s Fund to raise money in support of science enrichment in all four of Milton’s public schools. “We love that the Monster Dash is a great way to remember Sam and his passion for science,” said Chris Kamp Cichello. “The Monster Dash has become a tradition for many Milton families and we look forward each year to the new families and runners who participate. We’re grateful that so many people over the years have turned out to run and have fun.”

Proceeds from The Monster Dash are administered by the Milton Foundation for Education, which works closely with the Milton Public Schools and the Cichello family to develop science enrichment programming. One of the programs that the Monster Dash supports is Science Across Milton taking innovative science lessons and lesson plans to classrooms across town. The program also draws on the resources and expertise of the Blue Hills Trailside Museum on Route 138, where students visit to learn from museum exhibits and also present the results of their scientific investigations.
