BENEFITING: GOLF FIGHTS CANCER

ORGANIZER: GOLF FIGHTS CANCER

EVENT: Boston Marathon 2014

EVENT DATE: Apr 21, 2014

Brian Oates

THE STORY:

As many of you know, Golf Fights Cancer is one of my real passions.  The Boston Marathon is too.  

Running isn't necessarily one of my real life passions... but the ritual of the Boston Marathon most certainly is.

I love the marathon for many reasons:  I love raising money for GFC as I know the direct impact that we have made and we continue to make.  I love coaching newbie runners to set this incredible (and achievable) goal and helping them to realize it.  I love the commiserating with fellow marathoners that is part of the territory on freezing or snowy days.  I love seeing if I "still got it",  as the marathon doesn't get any easier each year. I love the excitement in Hopkinton and the accomplishment in Boston.  I love seeing my family and friends along the way.  I love what this event means for our city and for so many people - not just since last year, but what it has meant for so many years.  

So, thank you for supporting my fundraising efforts and for sharing in and enhancing my Boston Marathon experience.  I am incredibly grateful for your active involvement.  It's not something that I ever take for granted, but it is genuinely appreciated.  Feel good about your support as your contribution is going to make a tangible difference - in my race experience and in the fight against cancer.
