THE STORY:

Running is an integral part of my life. Last year I set out to accomplish a long standing goal -to complete the Boston Marathon. My dear friend and I were abruptly stopped less than a quarter of a mile away. I am beyond thankful that my husband, parents, cousin and friends were physically unharmed while waiting for me at the finish line. It left us all with a renewed appreciation for each other as we, and our determined city, began healing. With great appreciation, I will be running the Boston Marathon 2014 again with Team Jumpstart, and am asking for your continued support.


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.  I know that every step I take and every dollar I raise will go towards changing the life of a child for the better. Just like anything worthwhile in life, I can’t do it alone. I need all the help I can get. Every donation, even a dollar, adds up in making an enormous difference in the life of an at-risk child. These donations will put books in the hands of children who may not have ANY books at home. They will provide supplies for Jumpstart classrooms so these children have the tools they need to read, write, play, and learn. They will provide curriculum materials so caring Jumpstart volunteers have everything they need to enact engaging, enriching lesson plans. Meanwhile, I'll be spending nearly every day from now until April 21st running Boston Strong.


So please, take some time to donate, spread the word, and keep an eye out for updates on my fundraising and training. I cannot do this without your support, and together we can join Jumpstart in working towards the day when every child in America enters school prepared to succeed. 

Thank you for all of your support; it is what keeps me moving towards that finish line!
