BENEFITING: Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston

ORGANIZER: Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston

EVENT: 2012 Boston Marathon

EVENT DATE: Apr 16, 2012

THE STORY:

Hey Everyone,

Here we go again. Despite telling many of you that my marathon career is over and I'd never run another one, I once again just couldn't resist. (I honestly think this is how Brett Favre felt coming out of retirement all these times... and there's a good chance my performance will continue to decline as his did as he continually refuse to hang up the cleats.)

So this April, I'll be making the 26.2 mile trek from Hopkinton to Boston that is the Boston Marathon. Similar to prior years, John Hancock gives me the opportunity to run the race without qualifying (which is awesome, because they just made the qualifying standards more difficult this year). The only thing asked of me is to raise $1500 for the Boys and Girls Club of Boston, which is a great cause that I'm really happy to be able to support. (Additional details of the programs they offer and positive results they've accomplished are below.)

Any support you can provide is sincerely appreciated, not only by me but also by the kids you'll be helping out at the Boys & Girls Club.

Thanks so much,

Chip

 

 

Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston (BGCB) is thrilled to partner with our inspired marathon team of John Hancock employees to raise funds that allow us to provide hope and opportunity for youth in Boston and Chelsea.  GREAT FUTURES START HERE!

Our 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.

    97% of our members feel safe at the Club

    92% expect to graduate from high school

BGCB serves 14,000 youth, ages 6-18, annually.  Half of our members come from households earning less than $27,000 per year.  Programming in our Clubs is offered at a cost of $25 per school year for youth ages 6-12 and only $5 for teens.  Yet, BGCB invests an average of $2,500 per member.

Support from our partners raises critical funds for our life-enhancing programming in the areas of Education, Arts, Life Skills, Leadership, Technology, and Sports, Fitness & Recreation.

57% of national alumni say that participating in a Club "saved my life."
