EVENT: 2012 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 16, 2012
STUFF ABOUT ME:
I am excited to be running in my first marathon - the best marathon across the globe - The Boston Marathon. I have been running for 30 years but marathon training has not treated me well in the past. This time, I had a solid plan and coaching support from some of the very best - Greg Meyer and Bill Rogers - two of the great American marathoners to win Boston! Now, for the first time, I am in need of your support through encouragement and with my fundraising effort.
I am proud to be running on behalf of the Center for Teen Empowerment (TE) that empowers urban youth to work as leaders and improve their own lives and their communities. TE provides teens with the tools they need to work together and use their unique talents to effect powerful and positive changes.
Your contribution to my fundraiser will not only get me to the finish line but also help Teen Empowerment touch the lives of more than 5,000 urban youth and adults this year and inspire them to work together to address the most critical issues in their communities.
Thank you for your support and encouragement,
