BENEFITING: ROAD RUNNERS CLUB OF AMERICA
EVENT DATE: Apr 21, 2014
As many of you know, Lindsay came just short of crossing the finish line of the 2013 Boston Marathon. We know just how lucky we were that day, and this year, Lindsay and I plan on running and finishing in support of the city of Boston and its young people.
We are running together to support an organization with a mission that we both truly believe in. Town Track is a Boston running club based out of Charlestown. It was started by Lindsay's friend and running partner and provides young people in Charlestown a community that supports them and challenges them. It gives them a place to pursue opportunities they might not otherwise have and goals they might not otherwise set.
Every year the group conditions youth to compete in the USATF Junior Olympics and, this year, they had three kids qualify for nationals in San Antonio! Over the past two years, boys and girls have found their talents, learned about team competition and sportsmanship, and increased personal fitness levels.
With your support, funds will be raised to purchase equipment for the Club's track and cross country program, equipment for the Club’s community fitness programs, uniforms for the Club's youth cross country and track teams, and travel for the Junior Olympic teams.
The future of the young people of Boston is something we care deeply about, and we appreciate your support to reach our fundraising goal.
