To You Reading This Page,
First, thank you for even considering donation to this very worthy cause. BWH is an amazing institution. They are dedicated to discovering life-giving breakthroughs. I know that all of us have lost someone we love to disease and/or injury. Many of us have loved ones that are, or have, suffered part of their life due to a medical condition. Your donation will support the identification of new cures and the overall improvement in quality of life.
I’m truly honored to fundraise for BWH and I’m so excited to run Boston! This will be my 4th marathon and undoubtedly the most meaningful. I’ve been long distance running consistently for four years. Before that time, I had short stints of running, but never ran more than 5 miles at a time. Four years ago, I had a major life event and running was part of my medicine. It has since become my passion.
My first marathon was simply about finishing. My second was about becoming faster and my third was just to have fun. It’s no longer about crossing the finish line. It’s about the journey. This marathon is about giving back.
Training for this marathon requires months of hard work, braving the elements to run through the winter months, and the support of my family and friends…You. I am truly thankful for this opportunity and for Your support of me and this charity.
Taking life 26.2 miles at a time!
