I am so excited and honored to be able to say I will be running the Boston Marathon as part of the YMCA team this spring!
Running has always been a steady constant in my life; it started out as running for highschool and college, but developed into a passion and part of a healthy living. Throughout the years I have stood in the same spot in Ashland and watched the thousands of runners rain or shine make the run from Hopkinton to Boston. Seeing the perserverance of those runners and the support they get from everyone watching is what inspires me to run Boston and makes me believe I can do it too!
As both a resident and nurse in the metrowest area, running for the metrowest YMCA is a great honor because I know the positive impact they have within the community. They are helping build a community that fosters a caring environment and allows growth and health/wellness for people of all ages.
Lastly, thanks to your generous donation, all of YMCA programs are available to individuals and families, regardless of their current economic circumstances. Thank you for helping us all grow stronger, together.
