The BAA marathon has been a constant in my life since my family moved to Hopkinton back in 1987. I've watched tens of thousands of joyful runners stream across the starting line. I've also watched exhausted but exuberant winners cross the finish line. Now it's my turn. It's been a lifelong goal to finish this race and I would like to dedicate this race to my grandpa Bob, who still inspires me to work hard in order to help others. Thanks to Bottom Line for making this dream into reality. Thanks for your support in helping me reach my fundraising goal! I'll see you at the finish line!

Bottom Line was founded in 1997 to help low-income and first-generation students get in to college, graduate from college, and go far in life. Since then, we have provided one-on-one guidance and mentoring to thousands of high school and college students. This year, we will be providing personalized support to over 2,000 students across Massachusetts and New York.
Bottom Line's 2013 Boston Marathon Team (Team Go Far) will run 26.2 miles on April 15th as a way to contribute to our organization and the students we support. We're hoping to raise more than $100,000 this year through our marathon team, which makes a huge impact on our organization.
I hope you'll consider making a contribution to the team or a specific runner. Each member of Team Go Far has an interesting story and a personal motivation for our cause. I encourage you to get to know them.
Thank you. Whatever you can contribute will help our students get in, graduate, and go far!
