Hi everyone, I had planned …
Hi everyone,

I had planned to send colorful postcards to each of you after the marathon, with pictures of my triumphant finish, reminding you of the part you played in getting me there. You all now know that, though I would have finished yesterday, I was not able to cross the finish line and celebrate our collective accomplishment the way we had all hoped.

However, I do want to reach out to you and remind you of the good that came out of this. So many charity runners were running for area hospitals and medical organizations, unaware of how soon those resources would be needed. And you have all contributed to raising a stronger generation of educated citizens in Massachusetts. I raised nearly $6,000, and I believe that my team is very close to reaching our goal of $100,000. Our Bottom Line students don't just learn facts in college, but also the importance of responsibility. Persistence. Citizenship. Community. All things that are important for us in Boston right now.

Thank you for believing in me, and for the work that I do alongside amazing counselors and students every day. Thank you for helping to make education accessible to those who deserve the opportunity. I am blessed to know so many generous people, and to have had the opportunity to run and support the organization that I love.

However, our work here is not done. My teammates and I are already talking about heading back to the starting line next April to finish what we started and show support for everyone who was affected by yesterday's events. I believe that, together, we can make the 2014 Boston Marathon greater than ever.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you all.

Hi, Lisa! Thank you so much…
Hi, Lisa!

Thank you so much for your contribution to my Boston Marathon fundraiser. I can't even keep track of all the impressive running feats you've taken on in the last few years; you are such a beast and an inspiration!

College was such an important part of the person I am now. It gave me an academic drive, a career focus, and the best friends I could ever ask for. Thank you for your support in helping my students, many of whom don't have anyone else to guide them to the college of their dreams, find their dream school. Our office is all a-buzz these days with students finding out about acceptances and deciding where they're going to college. They wouldn't be where they are now without people like you!
