BENEFITING: Horizons For Homeless Children
ORGANIZER: Horizons For Homeless Children
EVENT: Boston Marathon 2014
EVENT DATE: Apr 21, 2014
Last year I trained for my first marathon in 15 years. On November 2, after three hours and 40 minutes of hard but exhilarating work and thanks to the encouragement of my sisters, brothers-in-law and incredibly supportive husband who cheered me on at the race, the Indianapolis Monumental Marathon was in the books.
Surprisingly, I qualified for Boston. So, on April 21, 2014 I will run the 118th Boston Marathon. To honor this exiciting milestone, I am raising money for Horizons for Homeless Children, a Boston-based non-profit that provides educational enrichment, playspaces and family support for young homeless children.
I hope you will join me in supporting this worthy cause that lends purpose and meaning to the many miles I'll be covering in the next few months. I am truly grateful for your generosity. Thank you!

Over the past 13 years, the Run for Homeless Children team has raised more than $1.2 million to improve the lives of young homeless children and their families. Each year, a team of passionate and committed supporters runs the Boston Marathon to fundraise and spread the word about the crisis of child and family homelessness.
The Boston Marathon has long been a time for communities to come together to run, cheer, and support each other. Our thoughts will always be with those affected by last year's tragedy, and those who are still recovering.
