I am so honored to run the 2014 Boston Marathon as part of Team Meb and The Meb Foundation. The mission of the Meb Foundation is to support communities in the areas of youth health, education and fitness.
Meb Keflezighi ("Meb") is a 3-time Olympic Member of the USA Olympic Team, and winner of the 2009 NYC Marathon. I share Meb's belief that sports play an integral role in the lives of our youth and that lessons learned through sports transcend to all aspects of life.
I ran my first road race at age 12, and since then have gone on to complete 13 marathons, over 30 1/2 marathons, 6 1/2 Ironmans, countless bike races, and other endurance events. The strength, inspiration, and support that I have experienced through running has transformed my life in many ways. Being able to channel this energy to benefit others, is both a gift and a privilege.
With the generous support of family and friends, my participation in these athletic events has raised over $40,000 for various charity organizations that directly benefit the lives of individuals fighting to conquer AIDS, cancer, and other life-threatening illnesses.
My 2014 Boston Marathon run, as part of Team Meb, is dedicated to helping children access the critical resources they need to lead healthy and fulfilling lives.
Thank you for your support!
