BENEFITING: CRADLES TO CRAYONS INC
ORGANIZER: CRADLES TO CRAYONS INC
EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
For the first time in more than 20 years I am running the Boston Marathon! I have 2 goals as part of this adventure:
(1) Try to finish faster than the 4:20 time I put up in 1994
(2) Raise $20k for Cradles to Crayons (C2C)
Why C2C? Many of you know that C2C helps local kids get the clothes, coats, boots, toys, school supplies, etc that they need but their family cannot afford.
My family has been volunteering at C2C since our children were very young. What we loved was the ability to work at the Giving Factory and share the experience together while also giving back to the community around us.
Since then I have been on the Boston Board of Directors, served on the host committee for the annual UnGala, and my daughter has grown up to work as a Teen Leader. The experience has been amazing so anything I can do support the organization financially or just to help build awareness is so worthwhile.
Please consider supporting me and C2C in 26.2 mile run this Patriots Day! My goal is to raise $20k - I know that seems like a lot but I know a lot of super generous people and I will train extra hard to make up for my extra advanced age ....
