I am excited to be running in this year’s Boston Marathon on behalf of a great non-profit called buildOn! The Boston Marathon is one of the most famous races in the world and I’m excited to step up to the challenge. I haven’t run in a marathon in over 10 years which was before getting married, having two kidsand turning 40! The opportunity to participate in such a great race and support buildOn at the same time was something I just couldn’t pass up.
As many of you know, buildOn has been very important to our family since it was founded 20 years ago. Catarina and I are very thankful that many of our close family and friends have gotten to know buildOn over the years. For those of you new to the organization, buildOn is an international non-profit that breaks the cycle of poverty, illiteracy and low expectations through service and education.
My buildOn teammates & I are fundraising to sponsor the construction of community schools in Malawi and provide urban youth from Boston Public schools with the opportunity to participate in this life changing experience of traveling abroad to assist with the construction of a school in Africa! Please support me in my mission to empower urban youth and Malawian villagers through the gift of education. I hope you will join me in celebrating this amazing opportunity by sponsoring me to run in the Boston Marathon on behalf of buildOn.
