Matt! Thank you so much for…
Matt!

Thank you so much for your donation, I can't thank you enough! I am happy to say that I am now over 50% of the way to my fundraising goal of $8,000! I know there are many worthwhile causes out there that you could have chosen to donate to and you chose the Ollie. It's very much appreciated.

In fundraising for the Ollie, you get the privilege of training with a group of other charities and having a coach. It's been an incredible experience so far. I am now over 11 miles. I have had a few icy runs, a few snowy runs and quite a few freezing runs. I’ve dragged my brother out for a multiple runs on vacation and have quite a few miles logged on the bike for cross training. We start hill training with "the devil" as they call him, on heartbreak hill this month.

I had the opportunity to go to the Ollie’s annual meeting. In doing so, I learnt that 27% of their fundraising revenue came from the marathon team last year. I am hoping we surpass that amount this year. Just a few quick facts to help you understand how much your donation means to the Ollie and the South Boston community in general:
• Of the 2,726 families living in South Boston with children ages 0-18, 34% of them live in poverty.
• South Boston is home to 5,079 children 0-18 and 1,682 of them reside in low-income housing.
• South Boston’s high school drop out rate is 7.7%, the third highest in the city.
• Of the 3,234 seniors age 65+ living in South Boston, 20% live below the poverty line.
Your donation has gone directly towards programs that help these individuals; Preschool Early Education and Care, School Age Program, Family Engagement - to help support South Boston’s most isolated families, Education and Career Development - to support high school and college students through successful education and positive work experiences, and Senior Programming - to promote health, reduce social isolation and enable seniors to live independently as long as possible. Thank you for helping to make this possible!

Just last week I visited the Preschool age group. Not only did I receive a warm welcome but I left with some new friends, making me promise to come and visit again. It's truly inspiring and humbling what the Ollie is doing.

I hope school is going fabulously! You're missed at TA!

Best,
Cam
