I am excited and honored to be given the opportunity to run the 2019 Boston Marathon as a charity runner fund raising for the Hopkinton Center for the Arts!!
The Hopkinton Center for the Arts (HCA) is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit community arts center serving the MetroWest communities of Massachusetts. The HCA is soley supported by private donations, every donation counts in making the arts accessible to all people! They offer classes for youth, teens, and adults in the visual and performing arts. They also have galleries that showcase a variety of exhibits including juried exhibits, the HCA Members show, featured solo artist exhibits, and educational and community projects. Enter Stage Left Theater is the resident theater of the HCA, producing up to 8 productions yearly! Their classes, productions, and exhibitions serve an inclusive community of students, performers, and exhibiting artists diverse in age, ability, experience, ethnicity, and geography. A few of their current programs include, visual arts instruction for developmentally delayed adults, music instruction for infants and toddlers, and linkage with public school students and teachers, who use the HCA as an education resource in the arts. HCA celebrates the creative spirit in everyone!
Growing up in Massachusetts, the Boston Marathon has been a dream of mine since I was a little girl watching the race on TV. This dream has grown with each marathon that I have completed, two this year, including Pacific Northwest and Chicago Marathons, for a total of 7 since 2012!
