THE STORY:

 

Dear Family, Friends, Colleagues and Supporters:

I am honored to be running the 2013 Boston Marathon. I will be representing Big Brothers Big Sisters of Massachusetts Bay (BBBSMB) for the second year in a row.

 As part of my commitment, I pledged to raise funds for the agency.  Thanks to charitable souls like you, I was able to achieve these same goals last year, and therefore I welcome any donation you can contribute in support of my fundraising goals.

I take great pride in being a Big Brother, having had the privilege of being a Big for the last eight years.

I have had incredible support and encouragement from the BBBSMB agency over the years and my Little and I have reaped the benefits of being perfectly matched, a giant testament to the agency's fine skills. 

Since I met Henry in 2006, our lives have improved in so many valuable ways.   I have been able to learn to be more patient, more pragmatic,  more in tune with popular culture, and --most importantly—I realize how special it is to have someone make you feel as if sharing amazing experiences and growing as individuals only requires a small amount of time.

Words can’t describe how proud I am of Henry, but I will give it a good try.

Over the years Henry has grown into such an exemplary kid.  He is the oldest of four children (he has 3 younger sisters), and has the most unselfish and kind demeanor any adult can ask of a young man.  Furthermore, Henry has transformed himself from being a shy, introverted young boy who struggled in school into one a brilliant shining star. He has grown to be very confident in his abilities, but has also remained humble enough to realize that there is always room for improvement. He has created his own success at home and in the classroom (Honor Roll student). Henry has played the cello and the trumpet in school symphony/band.  Furthermore, this bright kid enjoys playing all kinds of sports and plays organized football at school. 

What I admire the most about Henry is that he always thinks about his family first, and I hope that never, never, never changes.  That is something that can’t be taught, and I’m glad I didn’t have to attempt to teach him that.  The botttom line is that Henry has truly influenced my life in the most positive of ways, as much or even more than I may have affected his.

I want to THANK EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU for your continuous support over the years. Henry and I will be forever indebted to all of you for support in us and in great community organizations such as BBBSMB.   

Cheers and see you all at the finish line!

--Cal Perez and Henry Flores
