Thank you so much for visiting my Boston marathon fundraising page! Having worked as a veterinarian for the Animal Rescue League of Boston for over nine years, I can't imagine a better cause to raise money for as I pursue my marathon goal.
I have been a spectator of the Boston marathon for years while watching friends and colleagues run the race. However, my desire to complete the marathon myself was cemented in 2013. At the time of the bombing my husband had just completed his first Boston marathon and my daughter and I stood just a few blocks away around the corner on Hereford St. Though we were thankfully all unharmed, the experience had a greater emotional impact on me than I expected. It became a life goal that one day I run up Hereford St. past where my daughter and I stood that day and around the corner onto Boylston to finish the marathon.
I'm so excited to pursue this goal this year and can't thank you enough for your support!
