EVENT DATE: Apr 21, 2014

Heather Bergin

THE STORY:

On Monday, April 21 I will embark on running my 12th Boston Marathon. This year I will be running in hopes of raising awareness and support for Horizons For Homeless Children. Horizons For Homeless Children is an organization that helps to support children living in shelters throughout Massachusetts. Through many programs Horizons provides safe, consistent and enriching experieices for children who's lives are filled with inconsistency and uncertainty. A year ago this April, I began volunteering as a PAL, a Playspace Activity Leader, through Horizons. Every Wednesday evening I spend time in my assigned shelter.  During my (or a volunteer's) time at the shelter we follow the children's lead and engage in art activities, books, games, gross motor activities, dancing... whatever the children want to do. We help to provide safe and engaging adult intereactions while fostering confidence and trust. In my time there I have seen what an impact the PAL program has. I have seen children go from running out the door to running and hugging us PALS when we arrive. Again the PAL program is just one of the may ways these children are supported through Horizons. Your donation is 100% tax deductible and please know I see these dollars at work and the great impact that it has on these wonderful yet fragile children. 

With Thanks,

Heather
