BENEFITING: Horizons For Homeless Children

ORGANIZER: Horizons For Homeless Children

EVENT: 2012 Boston Marathon

EVENT DATE: Apr 16, 2012

THE STORY:

Hi friends! I'm running the Boston Marathon solo this year, and I'm thrilled to be supporting Horizons again. Having worked in a Horizons preschool, I've seen the impact that the organization makes in the lives of homeless kids. Thank you so much for your support!

Hope to see you on raceday, Amina
