I am running the 120th Boston Marathon with the Claddagh Fund team. It is a privilege to be running the Boston Marathon and I am thrilled to be running and raising money on behalf of a great organization!
The Claddagh Fund was founded in 2009 by Ken Casey of the Dropkick Murphys. Ken, his bandmates and their families have supported charities throughout the history of the band. Understanding the power of their position to harness the passion and generosity of their fans, the Claddagh Fund was created to raise funds for and broaden our impact on worthy, underfunded non-profits that support the most vulnerable individuals in our communities.
Utilizing a grassroots approach to fundraising, The Claddagh Fund supports community-based non-profits, with a focus on children and veterans organizations and programs that support alcohol and drug rehabilitation in cities across the country and around the world. You can learn more about the Claddagh Fund at www.claddaghfund.org.
I have committed to raising $5,000 and I need your support! You can donate directly on this page or by sending a check directly to the Claddagh Fund at 82 Broad Street, #344, Boston, MA 02110.
I have watched the Boston Marathon every year I've lived in Boston. Not only are the runners inspiring, but the outpouring of support from the community, with people lining the whole course, is incredible. I could not be more excited to run Boston alongside the Greater Boston community, and to raise money for the Claddagh Fund, also with the help of the community.
Thank you for your support, and hope to see some of you on race day!
