EVENT DATE: Apr 29, 2015
Hi friends. Well the Holy Grail is within reach! I'm running Boston in April 2015!
I've been a runner for about 8 years and, while not built for speed, have enjoyed the challenge of training and running marathons and, well, Boston is indeed the Holy Grail, so here we go! When the opportunity presented itself to partner with Metropolitan Boston Housing Partnership (MBHP) to raise funds for their Hoarding and Sanitation Initiative and be a member of their Boston Marathon team, it was a no-brainer. I work in public health and have encountered many people in jeopardy of losing their housing due to mental illness, economic troubles and hoarding (boy, do I have stories). The work that MBHP does to help people stay in their housing and maintain their dignity and quality of life is admirable and so I run to raise money to help support their work and my conquering Heartbreak Hill at the same time is just the icing on the cake (mmmm, did someone say cake?).
I appreciate any contribution you can make to support my fundraising efforts. When you get to my donation page, please consider directing your funds to the MBHP Hoarding and Sanitation Initiative by indicating that program name in the comments section.
Thank you so much!!!
