THE STORY:

Hi Everyone!

Thanks for visting my fundraising page.  As many of you already know, I have decided to tackle the 2012 Boston Marathon in memory of my wife, Caren.  Caren had a passion for running and it rubbed off on me.  It took me quite a while to catch the "bug" but over the past two years, I could not escape it. 

After my world was turned upside down on October 2, 2011, running took on a new meaning.  A few weeks after Caren passed, I completed the Newburyport Half Marathon and the training provided me with time for reflection and escapism.  The idea of finding a way into Boston entered my mind almost immediately. Life is too short and precious to put things off.  If you think you want to do something...go for it.  Caren lived like this and this is one way for me to start living the way she did.  I cannot think of a better tribute to Caren and I am sure you will agree!

A special "thank you" is necessary for the friends who helped me with the invitiational entry from John Hancock as it paired my love of running with my passion for the Patriots and the Kraft Family.

Your donation will help me reach my goal and more importantly it will provide financial aid for members of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston.  Additional information from the Boys &Girls Clubs of Boston is below.

Thanks for visiting and reading my story.  I hope you can donate.  Every little bit helps.

Cheers,

Brian

  

Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston wrote -

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.

According to The College Board, a typical full-time, year-round worker with a four-year college degree earns greater than 60% more than a high school graduate during  his/her working life.  The majority of our Club members come from low-income communities where only a small percentage of adults have attended college.  In fact, 50% of our members come from households with an annual income of less than $27,000. 

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.
