Hi friends and family!
On Monday, April 15th 2019, I am running the 123rd Boston Marathon to support the efforts of Project Hope!
Project Hope is a multi-service agency at the forefront of efforts in Boston to move families up and out of poverty. It provides low-income women with children access to education, jobs, housing, and emergency services; fosters their personal transformation; and works for broader systems change.
Located in the Dudley Street neighborhood of Dorchester and Roxbury, one of Boston’s poorest, Project Hope has worked in partnership with families since 1981.The agency was founded by The Little Sisters of the Assumption, who, in response to the family housing crisis of the 1980’s, established one of the first emergency family shelters in the state and launched Project Hope. Today the agency offers an array of direct services, including temporary housing, housing search assistance, adult basic education, as well as childcare and job training, to assist families in gaining the resources and skills to overcome homelessness and poverty.
Empowering homeless and low-income families in Dorchester and Roxbury for 30 years is Project Hope's greatest achievement.
I am SO excited and honored to be representing Project Hope and have committed to raising $10,000 for this incredible organization. Kindly with your help and generosity, together we can make this happen.
$25 – Covers school supplies for a new adult basic education student
$60 – Gives a job seeker a professional outfit for her interview
$100 – Helps with a utility bill for a family this winter
$150 – Provides a family with meals for a night in emergency shelter while we help them seek housing
I hope you will consider making a donation to support my first Boston Marathon, and most importantly, the families living in the greatest city there is. Any amount helps!
