After my daughter was born 17 months ago, time to exercise became limited. My wife and I both canceled our gym memberships and put our fitness on hold. Soon we started running together as a family, the three of us! As the distance increased the desire to run another marathon manifested itself. Running the Boston Marathon has always been a dream of mine. Getting a bib number isn't easy and I am grateful to be running as part of Team Framingham. I ran my first marathon in 2013 and that was an amazing experience, but it wasn't The Boston Marathon.
As a fifth grade teacher in Framingham, I have taught approximately 320 students. After leaving elementary school and then middle school, almost all of my former students attend Framingham High School. I have chosen to raise money for the Framingham High School Foundation because all of my students could benefit from the money raised. Framingham High School offers a wide variety of clubs and sports teams that can enrich the students' educational experiences and this charity helps make this happen. Raising money for the Framingham High School Foundation is an opportunity for me to give back to my students and make sure that their learning doesn't stop at the end of the school day. Please consider donating to the Framingham High School Foundation!
