EVENT: Boston Marathon 2014
EVENT DATE: Apr 21, 2014
I'm running 6th Boston Marathon on April 21, 2014 and 7th marathon overall! Since suffering a stroke in college, I've run a marathon every year and hope to continue. This year, I'll be running with my sister and excited to cross the finish line of the “biggest and best” Boston Marathon!
I'm extremely thankful to be running for FamilyAid Boston raising funds to benefit the community where I live. A donation of any size would be much appreciated!
FamilyAid Boston works with families at all stages of the journey from homelessness to housing by providing homelessness prevention assistance, emergency shelter and permanent, affordable housing in conjunction with support services. Along the way, we work with families to identify and address the problems that led to their current crisis. Our goal is for the families who we serve to remain housed, stable, and able to provide for themselves long after they leave our care.
For the last three years, FamilyAid Boston has partnered with the John Hancock Non-Profit Marathon Program to raise $107,280 to help homeless families.
Last year's marathon team raised a record $50,000 to help homeless families. This year, we hope to exceed $70,000 with your help!
