On April 16th, I am going to do something that I hope will greatly impact the lives of local kids in the Boston area. I will be running the 2012 Boston Marathon on behalf of the Boys and Girls Club of Boston. Thank you for taking the time to read this page to understand how I got here.
Over the past year, I have started to pursue and thoroughly enjoy long distance endurance events. I competed in the Boston Marathon in April, 2011, and also in the Timbermann 70.3 Ironman in August, 2011. Through these events I have learned a lot about myself, and a lot about the indescribable feeling you get from sacrificing your time and effort on behalf of someone else. This year, I could not be more excited to be fundraising for an amazing organization like the Boys and Girls Club of Boston.
The mission of the Boys and Girls Club of Boston is, “To help young people, especially those who need it most, build strong character and realize their full potential as responsible citizens and leaders.” They do this by exposing underprivileged and at-risk youth kids to life-enhancing programs that make sure they are surrounded and mentored by caring adults. This is something extremely important that many of them lack in their day-to-day lives. The Boys and Girls Club of Boston currently serves approximately 14,000 youth ranging in age between 6 and 18. They are changing Boston’s youth right before our eyes!
I ask that you help me reach my fundraising goal of $2,500 by making a tax-deductable donation. Thank you in advance for your consideration. Regardless of whether or not you are able to participate, I know that you join me in supporting this amazing cause.
All the Best,
