BENEFITING: ALPHA OMEGA COUNCIL INC
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
I’m excited to be running the 2017 Boston Marathon representing Alpha Omega Council, a non-profit organization dedicated to serving the community. Alpha Omega Council is deeply connected to the Boston Marathon with a major role in the Boston Marathon wreath ceremony and by raising $5,000 they can continue to educate and help those in need. In 2014, in the wake of the bombings at the Boston Marathon, the Alpha Omega Council and the Consul General of Greece in Boston launched the Marathon Education Committee, to promote appreciation of the traditions of civic responsibility and liberty that the ancient Greeks demonstrated in the Marathon.
I know running a marathon will be the toughest challenge I can take on both physically and mentally. To me running a marathon isn’t just about the day but about the hard training leading up to it, the lessons I will learn and on April 17th being rewarded by crossing that finish line! Being at the finish line on April 15, 2013 made me become the person I am today as well as allow me to realize how fortunate I am. I look forward to training, fundraising and enjoying every single stride in the months to come and conquering 26.2 miles that third Monday in Boston. Thank you in advance for helping to make this dream become a reality!
Boston Strong, Kelly
