EVENT: 2013 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 15, 2013
Almost 6 years ago I attended my first Boston Marathon as a volunteer at Mile 9. Ever since then, I've insisted on dragging friends along with me to the course each year to cheer on the participants and absorb the energy of the crowds and runners. I've always had a secret goal to someday be part of the pack and experience the challenges of training through the winter, culminating in such an exciting and tough day.
This year, I finally have the opportunity to accomplish this goal, and I'm honored to be running with the Tufts Marathon Team (my alma mater!). As a group we will be running in support of nutrition, medical, and fitness programs at Tufts University, including research on childhood obesity at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy. Over the past 10 years this team has contributed more than $3.5 million towards this cause. Personally, I have pledged to raise $5000 towards these efforts.
I'd love to have you as a part of my experience!! If you are able and interested in contributing, you can make a donation online here, or you can mail in the pledge form to pay by check or credit card offline.
Thank you so much for your support! If you have questions about this, I welcome your emails (firstname.lastname@example.org).
