EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
This year I will be running the Boston Marathon. It's going to be an exciting and challenging adventure to get ready for the big day on April 20th.
For such a great event, I picked an amazing charity--Camp Shriver--a summer sports camp that serves over 800 children, half with and half without intellectual and developmental disabilities, ages 8-12, from low income families in the Boston area. And it's all for free.
It's a great idea, and something every one of us can definitely put our support behind. That's why I have set an ambitious goal of raising $5,000 by April 12th for Summer 2015. Feel free to read more below or email with questions--and most of all thanks for the support!
See you at the finish line!
Camp Shriver serves an equal number of children with and without disabilities so that all children can play and learn—as equals.
We are so lucky to live in a nation where children with disabilities are included in our schools, in our communities and in our lives. But Camp Shriver takes this one step further. Inclusion is good... equal is better!
All the funds raised by our fantastic Team Camp Shriver members will directly support sending over 100 children to camp this summer.
Camp Shriver’s mission is to bring children with and without disabilities together to provide opportunities for social and motor development, while promoting positive peer relationships among campers.
