EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
I am thrilled to be a part of the Metropolitan Boston Housing Partnership's marathon team this year! My goal is to raise $11,000 to help MBHP promote housing stability and prevent homelessness. I have dedicated my professional life to issues that matter to low income communities. From my first job at Project Bread the Walk for Hunger, to my work at the San Francisco Human Services Agency, and in my current role at the SF-Marin Food Bank, I have seen first hand the incredible impact that sky-rocketing rents are having on low-income communities. Many of those families are making difficult decisions on a daily basis between paying for rent and paying for healthy meals or medications. These issues are all connected, and they are the ones that are the nearest and dearest to my heart. Please help by contributing as much as you are able!
