EVENT: Boston Marathon 2014
EVENT DATE: Apr 21, 2014
This year will be my second time running with the Cradles to Crayons Boston Marathon Team. Last year, I was stopped just 1,000 yards from the finish line.
This year, I am running the race in honor of all those affected by last year's events and in honor of all the families Cradles to Crayons supports in an effort to provide the basics for children all across Massachusetts.
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.
