THE STORY:

Growing up in Hopkinton, the meaning and importance of the Boston marathon has always resonated with me in a very big way. It was a tradition for my family to go to where it all started and watch the runners take off from the starting line, right in our home town. Over the years, I have watched many friends and family take on this amazing feat, always admiring all those who participate in this incredible event. Being a passionate runner myself, it has been a goal of mine for some time now, to run the Boston Marathon. I competitively ran track and cross country in high school and running has continued to be a huge part of my every day life. After the horrible events of the 2013 Boston Marathon, there was no question in my mind that I wanted to participate in 2014, to support the city of Boston and all of those effected by the tragic events, and to finally fulfull a long term dream of mine. I couldn't think of a better way to become involved than through the Melanoma Foundation. I was first introduced to the Melanoma Foundation through my Dad's company, Solect, who has become involved with the Melanoma Foundation in a big way. I have found supporting the fight against Melanoma to be so important as it effects so many people we know and love. I fear that my generation has become naive about the negative effects of leaving your skin unprotected. With this special opportunity to run the Boston Marathon, I hope I am able to raise money to not only help find a cure but help better educate people about Melanoma. I appreciate any help I may receive in reaching my goal of raising money for the Melanoma Foundation and look forward to the months to come as I train for the big day!

Melanoma Foundation of New England wrote -

While we are forever changed by the events that took place on April 15, 2013 and the days that followed, we will not let this define our experience. Before the tragedies on Marathon Monday, Team Running for Cover was already a remarkable group of individuals who came together to take on the challenge of the marathon and raise money for a cause they are passionate about.  They are now forever bonded, pulling together as teammates – and now friends – they supported each other and never waivered in their dedication to the team’s mission. 

The Melanoma Foundation of New England's mission is to reduce the incidents of melanoma in the New England region through education, prevention and support. MFNE hosts a range of educational programs to spread awareness. These programs include Your Skin Is In, a program teaching high school and college students the dangers of tanning, and The Skinny on Skin, which teaches beauty professionals to recognize potential melanomas on the head, neck and scalp of their clients.

Team Running for Cover is running the 2014 Boston Marathon to raise funds to support MFNE's mission. All funds raised will be used to fund and expand these educational programs throughout the New England Area.
