Deanna - Boston Marathon 2016
Event Name: 2016 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE Apr 18, 2016
On April 18th I will be running the 2016 Boston Marathon in an effort to support The Pat Rene Memorial Fund to benefit Mrs. Rene's Reading Corner at Shaftsbury Elementary School.
The Pat Rene Memorial Fund was created in 2014 to honor Pat's memory and to continue her work of helping to serve the present and future students of Shaftsbury Elementary School where Pat was a teacher for 26 years. The fund provides a minimum of $500 each year to Mrs. Rene's Reading Corner for the school to purchase new books, e-books, technology equipment or to fund presentations by visiting artists and authors.
Pat was born in Boston, MA and attended several Boston marathons to cheer on her daughter. The race is near and dear to Pat's extended family as they all reside in the greater Boston area.
I am honored to run on behalf of The Pat Rene Memorial Fund to benefit Mrs. Rene's Reading Corner. I grew up with Pat's daughters and greatly appreciate the impact she made on the Shaftsbury area community.
