BENEFITING: BOTTOM LINE INC

ORGANIZER: BOTTOM LINE INC

EVENT: 2012 Boston Marathon

EVENT DATE: Apr 16, 2012

THE STORY:

In January 2010, I made the same New Year's resolution that so many people do every year: start exercising. I figured this commitment would take the form of a gym workout, becuase I was terrified of running. Seriously. I'd never gone more than three miles in my life and I was pretty convinced that I hated it and couldn't really do it, anyway. I also have a bad habit of not keeping New Year's resolutions, which is why I only stopped biting my nails a year ago; I didn't think this one would be different.

Two years later, I have run six races, including my first half marathon this past October. Still, a marathon seemed out of reach. Last year I watched my friend Mike Wasserman finish his second Boston Marathon and thought, "Wow, that's amazing, but I couldn't do it." Well, here I am!

Not only am I running, I will be doing it for Mike's nonprofit, Bottom Line. I first learned about Bottom Line when Mike started working there six years ago. Having been fortunate enough to do a project with them myself during graduate school, I have firsthand experience with Bottom Line and find them completely inspiring as an organization.

Originally founded in Boston in 1997 and now with additional sites in Worcester and New York City, Bottom Line helps low-income and first-generation students get into college, graduate from college and go far in life. Bottom Line achieves this goal by providing one-on-one mentoring to students, nearly doubling their chances of graduating from college. This year, Bottom Line will support nearly 2,000 students across its three sites. 

I am running the Boston Marathon as a personal challenge, but more than that, I am excited to be a part of realizing Bottom Line's mission. Thank you so much for your support!!
