EVENT: Boston Marathon 2014
EVENT DATE: Apr 21, 2014
2014 will mark my 17th consecutive Boston Marathon and this year it is going to be a very special race. Running the marathon last year and being very close to the tragic events of that day served as a constant reminder of how people will always rise to the challenge when action is needed.
I need your help this year and and ask you to rise to the challenge to help battle homelessness in Greater Boson. This year I am so honored and proud to partner with Heading Home. As a volunteer, I’ve seen first-hand the success of Heading Home’s programs, which uniquely combine housing plus supportive services.
Heading Home’s mission is to end homelessness in Greater Boston by providing a supported pathway to self-sufficiency that begins with a home, together with critical services such as life skills, financial literacy, and job training.
Heading Home serves over 3,000 people annually, and places a special emphasis on helping local homeless families. For eight consecutive years, at least 90% of the residents in our permanent housing programs have remained successfully housed a year later. This success is due to the supportive services provided by Heading Home’s well-trained, experienced and compassionate case management staff throughout all stages of a client's transition from homelessness into permanent, affordable housing.
Please consider making a donation to our team and help end homelessness in Greater Boston and we will be sure to prove once again that nothing will stop us from crossing that line on Boylston Street.
