BENEFITING: FamilyAid Boston
ORGANIZER: FamilyAid Boston
EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
There are no words to articulate how excited and HONORED I am to run the 2015 Boston Marathon on behalf of FamilyAid Boston.
Although I now live in San Francisco, I grew up in Ashland, MA and lived along the marathon route my entire life. I remember handing out orange slices to runners as a little girl thinking, "One day, I'd like to do this." A longtime runner with a knack for half marathons, I've been waiting many years for Boston to be my first full 26.2 mile race. And to make that dream come true, partnering with an organization so very close to my heart like FamilyAid Boston, makes this endeavor that much more unbelievable.
I've pledged to raise $10,000 towards FamilyAid Boston's invaluable work for my beloved hometown and need your help! Every little bit counts and will undoubtedly put wind beneath my sneakers as I embark down the long and exciting training road.
Let's do this!!!
