THE STORY:

Dear friends and family,

I am training to run the 2017 Boston Marathon with my nephew and the Trinity Boston Foundation team. The Foundation is linked to the historic Trinty Church near where the Boston marathon ends.  

I have been volunteering for the Foundation since the beginning 2016. 

The Foundation leads a number of efforts but the one closest to my heart is their work at John W McCormack Middle School in Dorchester - a 100% minority attended school in the Boston Public School system. Prior to Trinity's involvement the school did not have a library. We now have a library with over 3000 books, reading space and volunteers who engage the children to find the right reading level materials. 

Under the Trinity umbrella we have brought STEM experiences to the children from the Museum of Science or taken them to the MIT Museum for workshops. Over the past year, I have really begun to understand the impact on children's education levels of differing access to resources and demographic characteristics. 

The funds that will be raised for the Foundation will be used in similar programs across Boston to empower youth and build cohesion in our communities. Volunteers from all walks of life leverage each donated dollar with their experiences and compassion to help a child escape poverty or simply enjoy a good book. 

Please donate any small amount you like, and forward this appeal to like minded friends. In an education utopia such as Boston no child should lack literacy, numeracy and a secure future.  

Thank you
