EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
I have wanted to run the Boston Marathon ever since I was a little girl-I vividly remember a trip into Boston with my friend to watch the Marathon for the first time. I was so amazed at the atmoshere, the electricity of the crowd- it left such an impression on me. I have followed this race every year since and it is only seems fitting that this should be my first marathon! I feel honored to run for Team C2C-having grown up in a big family and now having 5 kids of my own, I feel blessed to have the opportunity to give back to other families in need.
The amazing thing about Cradles to Crayons is not just the population they serve. They make giving back an opportunity for all. C2C welcomes volunteers of all ages into their warehouse and puts them to work in a fun and engaging way. Children as young as 5 can learn the importance of compassion and giving back. C2C teaches those who have and those who have not, the same lesson about caring and giving.
