THE STORY:

Hello friends and family -

Once again, I am going to try and defy age, injuries, and a lifetime of being a non-athlete, by running the Boston Marathon to raise money for Bottom Line (information later in this letter.)  I do this because the cause and the lives of the students helped are so much more important than any of my small complaints.

Mena is a high school senior who emigrated from Iraq and whose family faced homelessness and have moved from shelter to shelter ever since arriving here.  Bottom Line helped her make her dream of a college education a reality by helping her get into U Mass Boston where she just completed her first semester and is starting an internships in Senator Ed Markie's office.  Her parents are disabled and she hopes to go into healthcare and support people like them in the future. On January 3rd, we dedicated our training run to Mena's courage, resilience and inspiration.

Her incredible bravery and resillience in the face of such adversity makes my running aches and pains, and actually any problem I face, pale in comparison.  And she is just one of the thousands of students that Bottom Line helps - all with equally daunting histories as they try to obtain the dream of a college education.

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, we have provided one-on-one guidance and mentoring to thousands of high school and college students. This year, we will be providing personalized support to over 3,000 students across Massachusetts and New York.

I hope to run 26.2 miles on April 20th as part of Bottom Line's 2015 Boston Marathon Team (Team Go Far). The Team is hoping to raise more than $120,000 this year which will provide support for 30 students like Mena  for four years of college.

Thank you. Whatever you can contribute will help our students get in, graduate, and go far!
