EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon
Marathon: /merəˌTHän/ noun
- a long-distance running race, strictly one of 26 miles and 385 yards (42.195 km).
- a long-lasting or difficult task or operation of a specified kind.
This definition of "Marathon" is very fitting. Not only is it a long distance but it is also at times a very difficult task. This rings so true for the students at Learning Prep. Being able to run a marathon is a huge committment, a committment of time, emotional energy, strength and perserverance. These are things I see every day with my students. It is and has been an uphill battle that each and every student at Learning Prep is tackling with the support of their family and a very dedicated staff.
This year will be my 3rd time running the marathon for Learning Prep School (13th marathon overall.) I am honored to be given this opportunity. Over the past two years I have raised over $23,000.00!!!!! That blows my mind. Every dollar is put to such good use and it makes every step of the training and the race worthwhile. Last year I riased over $10,000.00. My goal this year is to beat that! I know I can run the race, but I will need the support of many friends to reach my goal. In helping me you will be supporting the many Learning Prep programs and those amazing teachers who make them happen. Please lend your support with whatever amount you can afford. Thank you.
