Running the Boston Marathon has always seemed like something I thought I could do, even when I was over 100 pounds heavier than I am now. To have the opportunity to run for Framingham is a dream come true. I am excited to be on a team of fellow Framingham residents and employees and know that I will have a renewed sense of pride in my community. I chose the Framingham High School Fund because I feel it fills important gaps for students where cuts have been made in the past. Dollars spent on educating our youth are vital to stemming a lot of societal issues and all students should have the same opportunity to excel. I am proud to be running for such a great school and know my contributions will be put to good use.
