Christopher Heske's Fundraiser:

Team Ouimet Runs Boston 2015

THE STORY:

I am extremely honored and excited to be running the Boston marathon in April on behalf of the Francis Ouimet Scholarship Fund. Ouimet is the largest independent scholarship fund in New England and provides scholarship opportunities to students who have worked in the golf community. This past year they provided  $1.6 million scholarships, the highest since their establishment in 1949. The scholarships are both need-based and merit based and the candidates are chosen because they also demonstrate a strong work ethic through their service in the golf industry. There are so many worthy charities in need of our support but I chose to run in support of this one because I believe that anyone who truly wants an education and believes in working hard should get the support they need to make it happen. My grandparents taught me how to golf when I was a little boy and I played on the high school golf team. I believe being involved in golf and fitness has helped me develop respect, confidence, a hard work work ethic and many other important qualities. There are no greater gifts than education and good health which is why this charity and running the Boston marathon are so important to me.

My goal is simple, to raise as much money as possible for Oimet and run 26 miles. Your small contribution will be greatly appreciated and will make a difference in a young person's life. I know there are so many worthy charities that need our support so I thank you for your consideration.
