2016 Marathon Run-- Nick Keefe
I am pleased to announce that I will be running my 5th consecutive Boston Marathon to raise money for the Saint Mark Summer Youth Program at Wainwright Park, known as the DOTS (Dorchester Over The Summer) Program. Saint Mark is the parish in Boston where I grew up.
With your help, the DOTS program continues to grow and prosper. Last summer, it enrolled 200 children with an average daily attendance of 150 kids. This is a strong continuation of its mission to provide a quality (and affordable!) summer recreation experience for Dorchester youth and their families. Another important part of the mission is to provide Boston youth and young adults with meaningful summer jobs. The program generated 43 jobs, which provided job training, work experience and, obviously, some much needed cash to some bright and very dedicated young workers. And because of its success over the years, the program has also gained a new summer job partner, the Boston Private Industry Council. Again, this would not be possible without the support you have given to the Saint Mark DOTS program over the last five years. I am hoping you will continue to give generously.
All contributions are 100% tax deductible and matched by Trinity Financial.
As some of you may recall, last year’s marathon was a very cold and wet day. Even with the difficult running conditions, I was able to tough it out knowing that I had all of your support, and that together we were making a difference in the lives of the St Marks DOTS kids. It is with this knowledge that I know I’ll be ready for this year’s elements no matter what they are.
Thank you and all the best,
Nicholas D. Keefe
