BENEFITING: Melanoma Foundation of New England
ORGANIZER: Melanoma Foundation of New England
EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
I'm thrilled to be part of the 2015 Running for Cover team! This will be my second year with the team, and my second Boston Marathon. I joined last year to run in honor of my husband Brian who is a Melanoma survivor, and for so many others who have fought bravely against this disease.
Of course I'm proud to have run the 2014 race and raised valuable funds for the MFNE last year. But what I'm most proud of is to see my running buddies slathering on the sunscreen before races, and my kids, who instinctively "assume the position" by putting their arms out and closing their eyes for sunscreen application whenever we go out. Prevention is truly the best medicine.
Team Running for Cover is running the 2015 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.
Thanks so much for your support!
