BENEFITING: UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS FOUNDATION INC
EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
There are so many things about running that can be rewarding, but there is something truly inspiring about running for a cause you believe in and raising money for the them.
I've always dreamed of running the Boston Marathon and I'm proud to say that in 2015, I will be running to support two causes extremely close to my heart: kids and wellness.
Your fundraising will significantly impact the youth within the Boston Public School system. Most youth at GoKids cannot afford a gym membership and do not have access to exercise safely outside. The center is vital to their health, well-being, and self-confidence.
GoKids Boston is a fitness, training, and research center that provides low income youth with life-changing wellness programs. Additonally, GoKids provides a training center where College of Nursing and Health Sciences faculty and students at UMASS Boston faculty produce significant research.
Here are a few (fun!) donation giving amounts:
$26.20 - A dollar for every mile I run!
$42 - A dollar for every kilometer I run!
$119 - A dollar for the 119th Boston Marathon!
$2,640 - A dollar for every foot I climb on Heartbreak Hill!
Thank you for not only supporting this incredible cause, but for helping make my lifelong dream come true.
