EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
Growing up in the Boston area and attending Boston College, running the Boston Marathon has been a long-time goal of mine. I ran my first half marathon (Boston’s Run to Remember) with my sister last May (pictured to the left), and this April I will be running the Boston Marathon in support of the Trinity Boston Foundation!
Trinity Boston is a great organization that works toward achieving equal opportunity for all youth who may not come from equal circumstances. I could not be more excited to run the marathon and for such a great charity! Please help me achieve my goal of running my first marathon and raising $7,500 for a cause close to my heart! Donations of all sizes are much appreciated. Thank you so much for your support!
About Trinity Boston Foundation:
Trinity Boston Foundation is an organization aimed at unlocking opportunity and changing the odds for the youth of Boston. They have three programs that target social-emotional wellness and personal achievement through academic mentoring and support, leadership development, counseling services, and running/physical wellness training. Trinity Boston provides direct services to over 500 youth and families in Boston.
Trinity Boston’s Three Programs:

- Sole Train: Mentoring and community-building program where mentorship pairs train together during the academic year to run Boston’s Run to Remember 5K or half marathon. The program uses running to help students learn about setting and achieving seemingly impossible goals. Sole Train serves 140 students across 10 Boston Public Schools.
