Thanks for stopping by my fundraising page for the 2013 Boston Marathon! For those of you who don't know, I'm currently getting my Masters of Public Health at Tufts and will be running on the Tufts Marathon Team (TMT). I am so excited to be part of a wonderful group and am very proud to represent the school.
I honestly never imagined that just three years after I started running I would be lacing up my shoes and pinning on a bib to run Boston. The encouraging words of the crowd, the feeling of the pavement beneath my feet, and the camaraderie among 20,000 new friends will keep me going, but I also need YOUR support to really make this dream a success.
As a member of the TMT, my goal is to raise $1,500 to support the wellness and medical programs at Tufts and its research on childhood obesity at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy. I believe in all that the university has to offer and feel grateful to have been afforded an opportunity to further my education and career as a health professional. It's a wonderful university, and the work that it does to better the health of the community can truly change the future. Please consider donating, any amount helps! Thank you for your support and I'll see you at the finish line!
