EVENT: Boston Marathon 2014
EVENT DATE: Apr 21, 2014
I have the honor of being selected to run with my team Mass Mentoring Partnership in the 2014 Boston Marathon. It has always been one of my goals to run in a marathon and as a fellow Bostonian; there isn't a bigger marathon than the Boston Marathon. Running in my first marathon is definitely going to be a great challenge that I am looking forward to. Luckily, I am surrounded by some great mentors that will help me train mentally and physically to prepare myself for this race. I have been very fortunate in my life growing up with 2 loving parents and loving older siblings that have always been there for me when I needed them and continue to do so. As a Dad of a beautiful 16 month old boy; I can see what an impact I am already making in his life being there for him. There is no better feeling in the world than being a Dad and watching my little boy grow up. I am going to do everything I can to be the best Dad and mentor to my son.
Unfortunately not all children are as fortunate as myself to have to loving parents and siblings that are always there for them. This is where the Mass Mentoring Partnership comes in. They currently serve more than 200 mentoring programs statewide serving 30,000 youth in mentoring relationships. Having a mentor helps young people stay engaged in school, develop a postive attitude towards learning and makes them more likely to graduate high school, attend college, and succeed in a work enviroment.
Please help me reach my goal of $10,000 and donate to this great cause. The young children of America need your help!!
