Jumpstart for Young Children 2014 Boston Marathon

THE STORY:

Looking forward to raising money to help Jumpstart and run the Boston Marathon in 2014.  At mile 21 of the '13 Marathon I was thnking, "now I remember why I waited almost 15 years to run a marathon." I was suffering, but had no idea that I wouldn't finish the race and that such a tragedy was just minutes away.  Running for a marathon for a charity is an emotional experience.  Add that normal emotion to the feelings and compasion that I feel when I think all those who lost loved ones and much more than I did during the 2013 marathon and the result an undeniable sense of resonsiblity to and desire to run in 2014 for Jumpstart, myself, and everyone affected last year.

Thanks again for supporting me and Jumpstart for the 2013 Boston Marathon and I invite you to continue to support me in 2014!

As a recap my official projected time was 4:20 this was about 20 min below my goal. My race was stopped about 5 min from finish line.   I guess it's a blessing that I was running slow and took time to take pics with my kids (see pic;))...I would have been right there.

Why Jumpstart (again!):

Jumpstart’s mission is to ensure that every child in America enters school prepared to succeed. Every year, Jumpstart recruits and trains thousands of college students and community volunteers, called Corps members, to work with preschool children in low-income neighborhoods. Throughout the school year, Corps members dedicate several hours each week with their partner children to implement Jumpstart’s proven curriculum and develop the language, literacy, and social skills these children need to succeed in school and in life.

This year, Jumpstart Boston’s Corps members will give 140,000 hours of service to change the educational lives of 1,000 children in nearly 50 preschools. Through their service, Corps members not only change these children’s lives, but their own lives as well.

One Corps member stated, “Last week my partner child wrote her full name out for the first time. In college, I have read books by philosophers, artists and political theorists. In three years, no words have been more powerful than those of my four year old friend. Thank you for the opportunity to work for something and with something I believe in.”
