Althea Wong-Achorn

Hello, my name is Althea Wong-Achorn, and I am the new Development Director here at WalkBoston. Seeing as we can’t get together in person I want to take a quick moment to introduce myself. Before WalkBoston, I worked at the USS Constitution Museum, where last year I led the Museum’s most successful gala. It raised over $670,000, which was $300,000 more than they had ever raised before. Before that I spent 7 years at the Boston Children’s Museum where I created their Destination Events program to increase community involvement with events such as the Boston Mini Maker Faire.

On a personal note, I am a Classics nerd and bookworm, I always wanted to be Kristi Yamaguchi, I am addicted to tea and completely obsessed with my dog. I am also extremely excited to join this wonderful team and I can’t wait for some of the great programming we have coming up, like our Beat the Bay State Challenge. We’re asking you to sign up to walk or run around the commonwealth with us for the month of November, to help us raise funds and awareness about the work that we do. We also have sponsorship opportunities and fun swag. So check out our event website at and if you have any questions about the challenge, fundraising, or anything development, just ask me! Thank you!
