THE STORY:

On April 21st, I plan to run with an expected 35,000+ runners in the 2014 Boston Marathon. The event, traditionally held on Patriots' Day, attracts some of the fastest marathoners from across the globe as well as thousands of "novices" who participate as a way to raise money for worthy causes.

My cause and that of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Berrien & Cass Co is to "Provide children with strong and enduring, one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever."

Think about a child who has wished for a Big Brother or Big Sister. Someone to have fun with and confide in. Someone to be a mentor. A guide. A friend. Now… think of how your gift could make a difference in that child’s life.

The only thing that is keeping us from making more of an impact is funding. During this year’s Boston Marathon, I intend to raise $8,250 to help mentor more children in our community. That’s roughly equal to one quarter for every stride needed to complete the 26.2-mile course.

But we’ll need your help to do it. Please make a contribution and share this page with your friends and family. Your contribution will be made to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Berrien & Cass, a 501(c)3 organization. All contributions are tax deductible. A donation of any size – Big or Little-- would be appreciated!

Help make a lasting impact for generations to come. Invest in the children of our community. To quote my high school chemistry teacher, "It's for the kids!"
