A huge resounding THANK YOU …
A huge resounding THANK YOU to all who supported my marathon run last Monday. It was a truly wonderful experience! I carried your support with me every step of the way and enjoyed every moment of the historic race. The crowds from Hopkinton to Boston were overwhelmingly supportive every inch of the way, and I felt honored to be a part of it. It felt as if a wave of goodwill blanketed the entire region! I ran beside folks with the names of charities that are so important to our city and surrounding towns. And as a supporter of my run, you all were a part of it. Your generous donation helped me reach my personal goal to raise $7,500 and helped our Family Reach team raise more than $80,000, which will be put to immediate use to help families currently dealing with the expense of cancer treatment. Most of these families face job/ income loss, while they face increased expenses, and we are helping make their journey a bit easier. I cannot thank you enough for supporting me in this effort. I work with many of these families first hand, and please know that your generosity on their behalf has given them so much comfort and hope. Thank you!

A highlight of my run... I met up with the family of Elizabeth, for whom I was running, at mile 10 in Natick, where they live. They were cheering wildly, knowing that Elizabeth's love of running was carrying me through to the finish line. They took great pride in knowing her legacy is helping other families as they face their cancer journey. They send their sincere thanks as well.

With love and gratitude,
Nicole

Thank you Carla for your kin…
Thank you Carla for your kind support of my run! As you know, the families we support will greatly benefit from this support. I hope your training is going well! I was feeling great, did 18 last week, then came down with the flu, so I'm discouraged, but hoping to get to myself very soon. I hope you are feeling healthy and strong! Hope to see you 4/21!

CROWDRISING SINCE: Jan 29, 2014
Stuff About Me:

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!
