Dear Friends and Family,
I would be extremely grateful if you would support me as I run the 2014 Boston Marathon while raising money for the Boy and Girls Club of Charlestown.
Anyone who knows me well, knows that Marathon Monday is my favorite day of the year. I love the palpable vibrant energy that’s overflowing in Boston on Patriots day. So when the horrific tragedy occurred during the 2013 Boston Marathon, I can’t even describe how much it hurt and affected me. I can’t even fathom what the victims went through. I was able to take comfort in knowing that the victims received the best possible medical care. I have been working in the Emergency Department at Brigham and Women’s Hospital for the last 10 years, and the staff that day went above and beyond. I hope the victims are comforted knowing that they truly did have the best Physicians, Physician Assistants, Nurses, ESA’s, and ED staff taking care of them. I am so proud of my department.
So what is the best way to respond to such a horrible event? To come back in 2014 bigger and better!
I am honored to be running the 2014 Boston Marathon for the Boys and Girls club of Charlestown. I’ve lived in Charlestown for about 9 years, and it’s an amazing community. However, it does have problems with drugs and violence. That’s why I appreciate your support of the Boys and Girls Club. The Charlestown Club has been a safe haven for the community’s youth by getting kids off the streets. It serves over 535 diverse youth ages 6-18 on a regular basis. 29% of the kids are from families with less than $13,000 annual household income; 27% from the $13,000-27,000 range. Only 36% of members live with both parents. Your donations will go directly to the critical youth support programs and help provide a positive influence to our youth.
Thank you so much for considering a donation. I hope to see you on Monday, April 21, 2014 where Boston once again will show how strong and vibrant we are!
Lots of Love-
