EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
Last year I had the time of my life running the Boston Marathon for the Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts and I am honored to be running again! I had never run a marathon before and barely finished my first half, when I found out that I had been selected to take on this challenge. Training for and running the Boston Marathon was a transformative experience for me and I am looking forward to being able to run again this year.
Running Boston for the Girl Scouts provides me with an opportunity to give back to an organization that was so formative in my childhood development, and has stayed with me to this day. I strongly believe in the mentorship and development of young girls so they are healthy and active. By focusing on these fundamentals, Girls Scouts opens the door to developing the courage, character and confidence of these girls, so they can be future role models and leaders in our society. I have the passion and ability to use the marathon as a vehicle to connect a new and diverse group of people back to an organization that helped to create strong women leaders in my circle today.
I am asking for your financial support for the Girl Scouts Get Moving Health Initiative, a program that teaches girls about health and wellness as they experiment with new sports and activities. I hope you will support my training, hard work and effort, so that together we can support this great cause!
