EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
My name is David Chang and I am currently a junior at Boston College. During the Boston Marathon 2013, I told myself that I would run. I was inspired by all those that passed by Mile 21 and the events that occurred during the marathon gave me more conviction than ever. I eventually ran my first marathon and I learned something about myself. Even though I was not a runner before, I proved to myself that with hard work and determination... anything is possible. As corny as that might sound, it's 100% true and this experience has helped me find success in many other areas of my life.
This year, I have the privilege of running the Boston Marathon for Camp Harbor View. Growing up, I always had the privilege to go to summer camp and the experiences in camp are ones that I hold very dear. Camp helped shape me to who I am now and provided life lessons such as confidence, teamwork, and friendship. It was a privilege that I was able to have and I need your help to make a difference in someone's life.

Camp Harbor View was founded in 2007 by the late Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino and businessman Jack Connors, Jr. to provide a fun, safe environment for youths ages 11 to 14 during the summer months. Now, the camp serves close to 900 campers and 65 15 to 17 year old Leaders in Training during the summer and year round. Our hope is to bring joy into each of the lives the camp touches and introduce the campers to new passions and skills they would not otherwise be aware of, striving to inspire them in their school years and beyond.
This year CHV, thanks to John Hancock, is hoping to raise $40,000 for program and occupational costs. We know that with the help of our friends and the community we can make this goal a reality!
