This August, we (Neil and Jasmine) are going to be running the Falmouth Road Race. The race is 7 miles. This is a pretty big commitment for us given that Jasmine has never run this far, and Neil hasn't run this kind of distance for at least 15 years.
Why are we running this in the middle of the summer heat you might ask? Well, we are hoping to raise money for Bridge Over Troubled Waters - a great non-profit based right in the middle of Boston.
Bridge Over Troubled Waters is Boston's foremost agency serving 2,000 homeless, runaway, and at-risk youth each year. They provide services to all youth (ages 14-24) to help guide them to a self-sufficient and stable adulthood.
Programs provide youth with essential help, ranging from short-term, survival aid services, to longer-term, life-skill building residential programming to prepare youth to become independent adults.
We are really excited to do this run and to raise support for Bridge Over Troubled Waters. We would love you to support us, and Bridge Over Troubled Waters, by sponsoring our run!
