EVENT DATE: Apr 15, 2013
Hello Friends and Family!
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. I hope you've been having a great 2013 thus far!
My name is Rachel Ganz and I'm a senior at Tufts majoring in International Relations and Community Health. I am very excited to be training for my first marathon with the Tufts Marathon Team (TMT). Running with my friends and sister throughout the winter has been rewarding and fun, but also difficult. In addition to training, at Tufts I love dancing with the Tufts Dance Collective, teaching ESL classes, volunteering at LIFT Somerville, and hiking/climbing with the Tufts Mountain Club.
For those who don't know, my sister Alana is also running the Boston Marathon with the Harvard College team. We've been so lucky that our schools are only two miles apart so we can do most of our long runs together. We're excited that our parents are going to be here on raceday to cheer us on!
Thank you so much for your support. I really appreciate every and any donation. If you're in the Boston area on April 15th, hopefully I, and the rest of the Ganz family, will see you at the marathon!
