EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon

"IF YOU CAN'T STOP THINKING ABOUT IT, DON'T STOP WORKING FOR IT"
It's always been a lifelong dream of mine to run a marathon...but not only any ol' marathon.... it MUST be the Boston Marathon! I've been a spectator each and every year on Marathon Monday, and every time I would watch those runners go by, an insane sense of motivation, inspiration, and drive would travel through me.
I never thought this chance would come, but I've learned that "dreams don't work unless you do." I cannot be more excited to be able to be a part of the most amazing marathon on April 20th in the year 2015! I am going to do whatever it takes to work my butt off, train like hell, and take care of my body the best I can to get across that finish line....but I need your help to do so!
Not only am I going to run 26.2 miles in the greatest city ever, but my goal is to raise at LEAST $5,000.00 for a foundation which is near and dear to my heart. The Boston Bruins Foundation raises money to improve the lives of the people I work and play with each and every day...kids!!! While teaching young ones for over seven years, I've learned that it is so incredibly important that each and every child recieves opportunities to grow and learn in a safe and healthy environments. This foundation supports charitable organizations which focus on the education, athletics, community, and health of children all around New England.
I am so incredibly honored to be able to be a part of a charity that raises money to improve the lives of our future. It would mean the world to me to reach (or exceed) my goal of $5,000.00, but I will need your help! Any amount that you may be able to donate will be greatly appreciated...it does not matter how much or how little...it would mean everything to me to have your support with this amazing opportunity!
I promise you I will not let you down....I will train my butt off and cross that finish line on April 20, 2015! Thank you for visiting my foundation page, and would love for you to be a part of this incredible experience with me!
I cannot wait for my dream to come true...and what better way to end my 20's than to run the Boston Marathon!
"Live your dreams and take risks...your life is happening NOW!"
Thanks so much for your support,
Here is more info about the foundation:
The Boston Bruins Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that assists charitable organizations that demonstrate a commitment to enhancing the quality of life for children throughout New England. The Foundation provides grants to organizations that meet the standards of its mission, concentrating on academics, athletics, community outreach and health. We believe that focusing and developing these four areas in children's lives creates a solid foundation, strong support system and ultimately leads them to be an impactful member of their community.
Nothing is more important to a child's future than education and the Boston Bruins Foundation is committed to helping children achieve academic success. To do this, the Foundation endorses programs that employ unique methodologies for children who not only learn well conventionally but also unconventionally. The Foundation seeks to support programs that provide homework assistance, a safe learning environment to develop social and learning skills and a challenging environment for children to discover their own special talents.
Athletic participation benefits children by fostering physical fitness, learning the importance of working together, and what can be accomplished with hard work. The Boston Bruins Foundation believes athletics can enrich the lives of children by removing boundaries and bringing together people of diverse backgrounds with similar interests. Athletics teach children how understand times of adversity and how to tackle problems head on with fairness and strength.
Another primary focus of the Boston Bruins is reaching out to the community. The Boston Bruins Foundation takes to heart its mission of 'enhancing the quality of life for children in our community.' Our outreach extends to organizations that are dedicated to working with at-risk or troubled youth, improving the self-esteem of children and developing our leaders of tomorrow. This area assists organizations that provide after-school activities to keep youth active, while exposing them to programs outside of a classroom curriculum.
The final focus of the Boston Bruins Foundation is the health of the children in our community. The City of Boston and the entire New England region boast some of the world's preeminent hospitals and medical centers. The Foundation's proximity to these centers enable us to support a variety of organizations involved in research, care and prevention of health concerns of our children.
