EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
On Monday, April 20th, 2015, I will proudly lace up my sneakers as a member of Team Cradles to Crayons for the 119th Boston Marathon. It took me some time to come to the decision to run again this year, but knowing my efforts could make a big difference in the lives of kids that go without simple things that I take for granted everyday, I decided to once again accept this challenge.
The picture above was taken at an event this summer to kick off the school year. Cradles to Crayons provides backpacks and school supplies for all kindergardeners in the Boston Public Schools. There was just something about little Tyrone that melted my heart. I will think of him when the temperatures get cold and I don't want to get out of bed for my run. I hope you will contribute to my efforts to help the other 305,000 children in need of simple essential everyday items.
