First off, thank you so much for visiting my page and considering helping FamilyAid Boston. You're doing an incredible thing.
A little bit about the guy you're supporting!
I grew up in Ashland, MA not far from the original starting line for the Boston Marathon! From early on I always promised myself one day I would run too. Life has landed me on the West Coast where I really began my trek to run the Boston Marathon. After running a few races I was fortunate enough to be introduced to FamilyAid Boston. Their mission to help families get a leg up in life is something we can all relate too in one way or another. I'm grateful to say that FamilyAid Boston gave me the opportunity to run the 2016 Boston Marathon on their behalf, and thanks to a number of incredible people we raised well over $10,000 to help homeless families. Over $133,000 for a team total!
As fate would have it, I'm back raising money for this amazing cause and beginning pounding the pavement for the 2017 Boston Marathon. I sincerely appreciate your consideration in contributing to help homeless families get off the streets and gain a new lease on life.
A little bit about the wonderful charity that is FamilyAid Boston:
The mission of FamilyAid Boston is to prevent and end homelessness, one family at a time. Each night, thousands of families in Massachusetts are sleeping in shelters because they cannot afford the high cost of housing. Others have no choice but to spend the night in their cars, emergency rooms, or even on the streets.
By supporting FamilyAid Boston’s 2017 Boston Marathon team, you are helping us to prevent families from losing their homes, provide shelter for homeless parents and children, and develop more affordable permanent housing in Boston. We hope you will join us in our efforts to create a city in which every parent and child has access to safe, stable housing.
