EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
Thank you for visiting my Boston Marathon fundraiser page! I am beyond excited for the opportunity to run this year's marathon as a member of the FamilyAid Boston Team.
This will be my first attempt at tackling Boston and my third full marathon overall. I am training hard to set a new personal best time in my hometown marathon! The difficulties of training, however, pale in comparison to the daily challenges faced by the nearly 1300 homeless families in the Boston area.
Every little bit of aid makes a difference and I am happy to raise awareness for and partner with such an amazing organization as FamilyAid Boston that works year round to provide the services necessary to meet the unique needs of each family in its care. All contributions are greatly appreciated and will serve to help FamilyAid provide assistance to an even greater number of families of this year.
Thank you so much in advance for your generosity. Knowing I have your support will prove invaluable in pushing me harder on race day!
Let's Do this Thing!
