EVENT DATE: Apr 15, 2013
Hello and welcome! As a first-time marathon runner, I am extremely excited to take on my biggest personal athletic challenge on April 15, 2013! I grew up playing basketball and working out but running a marathon is something I have recently been considering. Though this may seem like a huge undertaking, I am 100% confident that my personal motivations will give me the strength and determination to successfully run and complete the race on Marathon Monday. I will make the 26.2 mile journey from Hopkinton to Boston along with 100 Tufts Marathon Team (TMT) runners to support nutrition, medical, and fitness programs at Tufts University, including research on childhood obesity at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy. Having recently received my Master's degree from Tufts University School of Medicine, running for the TMT would allow me to represent my school while contributing to important health-related programs like the one I completed. In addition to running for Tuft's cause, I also be wearing my hot pink sneakers, a pink watch, and a pink "Faith" bracelet in support of breast cancer. Having these motivators and a great support system comprised of friends and family, you can become a part of this cause and help make this dream a reality for me! Please support me in my commitment to running the 2013 Boston Marathon by making a gift donation online. If you prefer, you can mail in the pledge form to pay by check or credit card offline.
If you have any questions for me, please don't hesitate to email me at email@example.com.
