THE STORY:

For more than 30 years it has been my dream to run the Boston Marathon. Now I have the opportunity to do so not for personal achievement, but to help people in need.

Team MBHP is ending homelessness one mile at a time. MBHP's programs and services help more than 10,000 households per year find and maintain safe, quality, affordable housing. MBHP also serves as the state's largest regional provider of rental assistance, serving homeless, elderly, disabled, and low-income individuals in Boston and 29 surrounding communities. It is a recognized leader in advocating for better housing policies and in designing housing programs that benefit thousands of Greater Boston households.

Won't you join me in this worthy endeavor? Show your support with a donation of $26, $52, $104, or more and help me exceed my new fundraising goal, $6000. Every multiple of $26 you donate before April 9 will give you a chance to win tickets to an Alvin Ailey Theatre Performance in Boston at the end of April.
 

The first picture is me running the marathon course in September in memory of my sister Leslie, who is my inspiration. The next picture was taken after a long run in January - there is an icicle on my chin. The group picture shows Team MBHP at our first meeting. The fourth and fifth pictures were taken Thursday, March 22, after a 9-mile run - I call them "flying colors." I ran about 6 miles with blood running down my leg after I tripped and scraped both knees. The last picture was taken April 14, two days before the race.
