BENEFITING: Jumpstart for Young Children, Inc.
ORGANIZER: Jumpstart for Young Children, Inc.
EVENT: 2016 Boston Marathon
Jumpstart gave me MY START in running the Boston Marathon in 2011. I had an absolute wonderful time raising much needed money for a charity that gives children from low-income communities a chance to catch up on their literacy skills before entering kindergarten.
Together we raised over $20,000 in 2011, and in subsequent years, particularly after the 2013 bombings occured, I felt compelled to continue to fundraise. I have been lucky enough to run Boston the last five years and I have decided that 2016 will likely be my final Boston. Some streaks just aren't meant to last forever! I would like to go OUT the same way I came IN and that is raising LOTS of money for Jumpstart!
Please join me and donate as we work toward the day every child in America enters kindergarten prepared to succeed!
