THE STORY:

Having lived in Boston for a few years now, I had always entertained the thought of running the Boston Marathon.  However the 26.2 miles never seemed like a feat I could conquer.  It wasn't up until the year of the bombings that I had signed up for my longest race to date, a half marathon.  Coincidentally the half marathon I had signed up for was the Boston's Run to Remember; a race that honored the fallen officers and heroes of our beloved city.  

After the events of April 15, 2013, the Run to Remember quickly sold out, as the runners of this city decided to stand tall rather than run scared.  The pride of the runners, the support of fans on the sidelines, and the appreciation of the police officers during that race day were truly inspiring.  

This year I attened my first ever Boston Marathon, and was excited to support all of the thousands of runners.  The emotion that overcame me, watching athletes complete their 24th mile was overwhelming.  I knew in that moment, I needed to feel that sense of accomplishment, and run for a great cause the following year.

Philanthropy and fundraising for good causes are things that I have always been passionate about.  Most recently my fundraising efforts and advocacy have been focused around St. Jude's Children's Hospital.  However, for the marathon, I was looking to advocate for a more local organization, that may need a bit more help than a big name like St. Jude's.

Bottom Line was founded in 1997 to help low-income and first-generation students get in to college, graduate from college, and go far in life. Since then, this organization has provided one-on-one guidance and mentoring to thousands of high school and college students. This year, Bottom Line will be providing personalized support to over 3,000 students across Massachusetts and New York.

I am honored to say I will be running for this local organization based out of Jamaica Plain.  Joining the Bottom Line team, I have committed to raising $10,000 towards the organization, to help students get the higher education that they deserve.

I would truly appreciate any and all support in reaching this goal.  Donations of any amount will make a difference in helping me hit my committed goal, while allowing students the opportunity to a brighter future!

Here's to completing 26.2 miles!

Thanks,

Alex DiGregorio
