ORGANIZER: BOSTON CELTICS SHAMROCK FOUNDATION INC
EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
I am grateful and honored to announce that I will be running the Boston Marathon this year! The opportunity to run and to be sponsored by The Boston Celtics Shamrock Foundation is one I had to accept and my goal is to raise $5,000 for this awesome organization.
Each one of our lives has been touched by the death or illness of a loved one and there are so many causes that need and deserve our donations. We are constantly faced with the questions of where and how the donations we make will do the most good. In the past, I have participated in fundraising events for Dana Farber, Avon Foundation for Breast Cancer, Parkinson's Disease Foundation, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and Alzheimer's Association. Each one of these causes has touched my life personally.
Today I ask you to please consider donating to the Boston Celtics Shamrock Foundation to better the lives of countless children and families. It is a great fit for my fundraising efforts, as so far, this marathon training experience has definitely bettered my life!
I have been training and will be running with my dear friend Robyn and my husband Terence - the first marathon for all three of us! Yes, this winter has been a tough one for training and I often get through a long run on the dreaded treadmill by thinking about the suffering I know exists for so many and how lucky I am just to be able to train.
Thank you for your support!
With love and gratitude,
