EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
Dear Family & Friends,
I'm honored to be running the Boston Marathon on April 17, 2017 as part of Goodwill's Running for Great Kids team. I have been fortunate enough to be surrounded by friends, family, teammates, coaches, and professors who have consistently served as role models throughout my life. I would not be where I am today, especially running the Boston Marathon, without all of their love and support. I am Running for Great Kids because everyone should get to experience this type of supportive community where leadership, growth, academics, and community service is valued.
All of our fundraising efforts support Goodwill’s Youth Initiative, a year-round program designed to raise the aspirations and enhance the skills of young people living in underserved Boston communities, with a special focus on Roxbury, Dorchester and Mattapan. The Youth Initiative is offered without charge and common themes across all components of the program are active service learning, leadership and self-esteem development, collaboration with community organizations, youth engagement in program planning, and preparation for adult life.
Our 2017 team is composed of selfless individuals committed to supporting the academic, personal and professional development of the more than 125 children from underserved communities in Boston who participate in our Youth Initiative programming.
Each mile run and dollar raised goes to support this great program. Thank you for helping Goodwill continue its legacy of assisting youth with limited opportunities realize their full potential.
Thanks for your support!
Love, Nicole Strauss
