Welcome to the Light Foundation's 2017 Boston Marathon fundraising page! We are so proud and excited to cheer on our second Boston Marathon team - Team "Speed of Light".
In 2001 Matt and his wife, Susie, established The Light Foundation – a non-profit organization that exists to give at-risk kids a better chance at leading healthy lives by using the great outdoors to learn and grow. We run our Cultural Leadership Camp for a hand selected group of young men from around the country where they are taught the values of responsibility, ethics, accountability, and leadership. Our staff follows up with these kids all year round to ensure they stay on track. The main mission: to steer them away from the self-destructive patterns they have established in their lives and to teach them ways to make better life choices. The kids who have gone through our programs have emerged as leaders and mentors to their peers. The Light Foundation also establishes partnerships with other nonprofits to better serve the needs of the greater community. In addition, the organization provides academic scholarships to deserving young student leaders.
Please support our cause by donating any amount to Team "Speed of Light" so we can continue to give kids a chance at leading successful lives. Funds raised will support our Cultural Leadership Camp, our scholarships and community programs.
Please share with your friends and family to get the word out! We will be cheering our team on all through their training and in April on the big day!
We wish all of the athletes the best of luck!
