BENEFITING: NATICK ROTARY CHARITABLE CORPORATION
ORGANIZER: NATICK ROTARY CHARITABLE CORPORATION
EVENT: 2016 Boston Marathon
This April I'll be lacing up my sneakers and running my first marathon - Boston!
I'm running on a team for Embrace a Family, a local nonprofit dedicated to providing Natick families struggling with cancer with financial assistance for the non-medical expenses associated with their diagnosis. It is a 100% volunteer-led organization, so every dollar Embrace a Family receives goes directly to the patients.
These volunteers run a marathon of their own every day. They take time out of their busy lives to help real people, my neighbors, manage the day-to-day realities of living with cancer. They help coordinate transportation, grocery shopping, child care, utility bill assistance and so much more.
I'm humbled and honored to run on behalf of these heroes, and have committed to personally raise $4,000 for this important cause. I hope you will join me in making a contribution - and perhaps in taking a training run too. :)
Thank you so much for your support.
