THE STORY:

On Monday, April 21st, 2014, I will be running the Boston Marathon. 

Prior to 2011, if you were to have asked any of my friends or family if they could picture me running a marathon they all would have laughed. In years previous, my extent of exercising was pretty non-existant. The mere thought of running would have never entered my mind…I hated running. Being 75 pounds overweight, having a feeling of constant exhaustion and no true way to achieve much stress relief, I knew I needed a change. I myself never envisioned this change would be to run a marathon.  What started slowly and rather painful turned into one of the best things I have ever done for myself. Running became my escape. The more I ran, the more I hoped to achieve. From my first 5k that I never thought I could complete to now running in the most prestigious race in the world. Ever since I began running, my biggest goal was to run the Boston Marathon, and I couldn’t be more excited to have been granted that privilege. I feel so honored to have this once in a lifetime opportunity! 

I will be running to raise money for a charity that’s near and dear to our family, Cradles to Crayons. 100% of the money raised will directly support the vision that one day every child will have the everyday essential items they need to thrive - at home, at school, and at play.

Thanks so much for your help. Your contributions - any amount you can give - will truly make a difference in the lives of children.

 

About Cradles to Crayons:

Founded in 2002, Cradles to Crayons provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive - at home, at school and at play. We supply these items free of charge by engaging and connecting communities that have with communities that need.

More than 305,000 children ages 0-12 are living in low-income or poverty stricken households in Massachusetts; each year, an estimated 100,000 Massachusetts children will experience the desperation of homelessness. These children are often lacking the basic essentials they need and deserve to thrive.

Please support the Cradles to Crayons Boston Marathon Team’s efforts to help provide essential items like clothing for a week, winter coats, shoes, books, developmental toys and more for the children we serve.
