BENEFITING: FRIENDS OF THE PUBLIC GARDEN
ORGANIZER: FRIENDS OF THE PUBLIC GARDEN
EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
I am excited, nervous and honored to be running my first Boston Marathon in support of the first public botanical garden in America - the Public Garden, the Common and the Comm Ave Mall! I have been running for a few years and have finished a couple of marathons. However, nothing prepares you for Boston as well as a good, long Boston winter training season. My teammate Deb Howe and I braved some cold mornings and slushy roads. As we count down to race day, I dream of green, blooming parks at the end of the 26.2 miles.
The funds I am raising will go toward the preservation and maintenance of the iconic and quintessentially “Boston” parks. The Friends of the Public Garden maintain all the trees, repair turf, expertly care for and restore the many sculptures in the parks, and - they renovated the beautiful Brewer Fountain Plaza! Please lend your support.
And if you are going to Boston to watch on the 20th of April, please look out for me running by!
