BENEFITING: Boston Health Care For The Homeless Program Inc
EVENT: Boston Marathon 2014
EVENT DATE: Apr 21, 2014
Helping to Rebuild Lives … 46,112 Steps at a Time
Hello! I have the honor of running in the 2014 Boston Marathon on behalf of the Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program.
Cutting to the “Chase”: Please consider supporting me and the BHCHP in April’s Boston Marathon.
My Story: http://scottcronin.tumblr.com
I first became involved with the BHCHP after graduating from Babson in 2010. I joined their Young Professionals Board, because I was inspired by the work they did, how diligently and humbly they served Boston … and it was cool to meet Eck: http://bit.ly/1mmefaS
This innovative and adaptive organization treats nearly 12,000 patients each year all across greater Boston. This group:
- saves lives,
- improves Boston’s quality of life,
- increases cost efficiency in the public health care system, and
- provides hope to thousands of our fellow Bostonians each year.
The video below of the late Tim Russert eloquently identifies the BHCHP as a model for other cities to emulate, but also as moral compass for how a modern society should care for those who have “fallen down” in life and are struggling among us, along margins of our city. And, most importantly, how the care, compassion and dignity provided to Boston’s homeless is truly God’s work.
Why This Year:
The terrible events of last April’s marathon saddened and shook all of us. Running in April 2014 is the best way I can imagine to help the BHCHP continue mission, while also honoring Boston on what I’m sure is going to be our city’s greatest day.
Anything you can donate would be greatly appreciated.
As a 501(c)(3) organization, your donations to the BHCHP are fully tax deductible.
Thank you all for your support!
