Team Catholic Charities Boston Marathon

THE STORY:

Before 2003, I had never run more than a few miles at a time and had never been a part of an organized foot race.  In the spring of that year, my college roommates from Holy Cross committed to a half-marathon race and invited me join them.  After four invasive knee surgeries, I thought any long distance running was out of the question.  Yet, after some good-natured peer pressure, I committed to the race as a one-time chance to try something that I thought was well beyond my capability.  Although I believed it would be impossible, after months of training in the summer heat, not only did I cross the finish, but I became hooked.  Since that first half-marathon in Virginia Beach, I have run many races in a variety of cities, like Nashville, Phoenix and Indianapolis.

For anyone who has completed even one long distance race, the Boston Marathon holds a legendary status.  The unforgiving course, often abusive weather conditions, and storied history make the right turn onto Hereford and the left turn onto Boylston to the finish line the brass ring for any runner. 

It has been my honor for the past three years to run Boston and make those final turns for Catholic Charities.  When I learned this year that I would have a fourth opportunity to run Boston in support of Catholic Charities, I didn’t need to think about my answer.  The work that Catholic Charities performs and the support it provides is more important today than it has ever been.  The chance to raise funds for the Basic Needs programs, while attempting to reach Boston’s finish line in the shadow of Fenway Park, is a perfect marriage of challenges.

I am hoping that you will help me reach both of these goals by donating to Catholic Charities.  My marathon fund raising goal is $5,000.  I would be honored to have your support in this effort, and I know that with your help, I will cross both finish lines.
