THE STORY:

My story is not unlike the stories of many others who have set out to achieve a goal and invested countless hours to reach it. Ten years ago, I began with the relatively modest goal of completing a marathon. Four months of dedicated training allowed me to achieve that goal. As goalsetters tend to do, I then set bigger and harder-to-reach goals. Eventually, after completing a number of marathons, I set my sights on the ultimate goal of marathon runners . . . to qualify for Boston. Although it took 15 tries, I am thrilled to finally be heading to Boston in April 2012. To celebrate, I am raising funds for the Boys & Girls Club of Boston. It should come as no surprise that I am setting a fundraising goal . . . My goal is to raise $5,000. If you would like to help me achieve my goal, I invite you to donate to this worthy cause.

The Myra Kraft Giving Back Scholarship Fund was established in 2003 by Myra’s four sons to honor her on the occasion of Robert and Myra's 40th wedding anniversary.  The Fund provides financial support for college to outstanding members of Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston (BGCB) who give their time and talents to the community and understand the importance of helping others.  Since Myra’s passing in July 2011, the Fund has grown significantly and will provide more Club members with critical financial aid for college for generations to come.

BGCB's mission is to help young people, especially those who need us most, build strong character and realize their full potential as responsible citizens and leaders.  By supporting the Myra Kraft Giving Back Scholarship Fund you will help extend the mission of Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston to further impact the lives of the individuals we serve.
