BENEFITING: HOPKINTON CENTER FOR THE ARTS
ORGANIZER: HOPKINTON CENTER FOR THE ARTS
EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon
I am so excited to be running my first marathon for the Hopkinton Center for the Arts (HCA). Ever since I was little, I’ve dreamed about running the Boston Marathon. Growing up in Hopkinton, Marathon Monday always felt like Christmas Morning. We would get up at the crack of dawn and ride our bikes to the common, where the start line is. I loved seeing our quiet little town become such a happening place with runners from all around the world sharing the same mixed feelings of nervousness and excitement. This year I look forward to sharing those same feelings as a runner rather than a spectator.
In my mind there's no better organization to run for than Hopkinton's own Center for the Arts, which offers classes in dance, music, fine arts, theater, photography, and ceramics. HCA is a key part of our community because it encourages people of all ages to express their creativity through its various arts opportunities. Funds raised by this year’s Marathon team will help provide lessons, supplies, and the ability for people to share their work with our community. Thank you in advance for your consideration in supporting this wonderful local organization!
