EVENT: 2012 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 16, 2012
This coming April I will run the Boston Marathon for Housing Families, a wonderful organization that provides housing for 600 low-income family members, 52% of which are children, in Massachusetts. Beyond providing shelter, HF creates individualized support for each family, which includes after school and eviction prevention programs.
It turns out running a marathon is kind of hard, but giving is so easy! Here's more information about Housing Families: www.housingfamilies.org
