THE STORY:

 

I was introduced to the Newton Wellesley Weston Committee this year through BC's service learning program, PULSE. Having the chance to spend two afternoons a week with the seven women who live at the Juniper House, one of the NWWC's five residential group homes, has been the highlight of my sophomore year! Whether we are doing crafts, heading to Zumba, or catching up over dinner, these women have welcomed me into their home and have taught me so much about what it means to live well. 

I am so thrilled to have the opportunity to fundraise and run the 2017 Boston Marathon for the NWWC. Combining my longtime love of running, respect for this organization's residents and staff, and admiration for this amazing Boston event is a dream come true. I cannot wait to be on the starting line this April and I thank you so much for your support!
