I’m EXCITED to tell you I’m raising funds for Hopkinton Center for the Arts (HCA) in order to obtain a charity bib to run the Boston Marathon on April 15th, 2019, Patriots Day!!
Running and participating in races has become my joy and passion. Boston Marathon, one of the world’s most iconic marathons, is on my bucket list to complete. Please donate to help me get to the start line and cheer for me to reach the finish line of this prestigious marathon.
HCA is located a few blocks from the start of the Boston Marathon. HCA is a nonprofit visual and performing art center. They offer classes in fine arts, dance, music, theater, filmmaking, photography, acting and ceramics for youth, teens and adults. The benefits of visual and performing arts goes beyond creating something beautiful. Expression through art relieves stress, enhances creativity, develops problem solving abilities builds leadership and social skills.
Of the 50 events HCA held last year almost half of them were free. Sunset Jazz Concerts, Shakespeare Under the Stars, art gallery shows. They also provide scholarships for families in need to take classes and attend events.
Ticket sales only cover about 2/3rds of the cost of all of their programs. HCA relies on donations to do the work they do!
HCA's website is www.hopartscenter.org if you want to learn more about the art center which serves over 12,000 people each year.
I appreciate any support you can provide. Thank you!!
