I wanted to thank you again …
I wanted to thank you again for your donation and support. The Boston Marathon was less than a week ago, but the impact it made on me is permanent. I raced for the Hole in the Wall Gang. During the journey to the start line, I have a developed a group of new friends including my teammates and the Team Hole in the Wall leadership team. Raising money is not easy, but my goal was to be part of something much bigger than just raising monies for a great charity.

Two runners on my team hatched the idea of running 250 miles in 8 days from NJ to Boston. Though I only ran about 10 of the miles on that journey, (I did run the marathon though) I was actively involved assisting with planning, logistics, and support. On April 13th when they left NJ, there were over 300 people from the town to cheer us on. We had a fire truck and police car escort as well at every intersection for the 1st five miles there was an emergency vehicle with crew cheering us on. There were TV interviews along the way to Boston and the week before, all major NYC TV networks interviewed the runners. On Saturday we arrived in Boston and with your support and those we met on the 250 mile run, we presented a check to the Hole in the Wall Gang for $100,000. This will provide 40 children to attend camp at no cost. Last year over 20,000 children attended the camp globally and no family ever pays.

The camp and children mean a lot to me and I applied and was accepted to be a Counselor July 2-8 working with HIV children. I look forward to making an impact on these children, but I am even more confident that this will be a life changing experience for me.

Thank you again for your support,

Eric

BTW the marathon was incredible and with this being my lucky number 13th marathon, I can say that this is the most meaningful race I have completed on many levels.
