Boston Marathon 2016: Boston Firefighters Children's Fund
Organized by: Meghan Clapp
EVENT DATE Apr 18, 2016
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!
On April 18th, 2016, I will be running the Boston Marathon for the second time as a member of the Boston Fire Department team. This year, we will be running to support the Boston Firefighters Children's Fund. In 2006, Flt. Robert Killduff formed the children's fund to assist children that felt the pain of losing all of their belongings due to fire during the holiday season. This year alone two fires destroyed homes in Hyde Park and Dorchester. Within days, the fund provided checks to the families to help replace articles that were destroyed in the fire. Since its inception, the fund also reaches out and helps neighborhood little leagues, church groups, playgrounds and many other groups to contribute to the children of Boston.
By donating, you will be providing support directly to children in Boston who have been adversely affected by fires. Any donation towards helping me reach my goal and supporting this great cause is greatly appreciated!
