Hi everyone! My name is Alli West and I am a 3rd year Special Education teacher at an amazing school, Winthrop STEM Elementary Magnet, in New London, CT. I am honored to be running my 6th marathon, in my 6th state: the 2018 Boston Marathon! This has been a dream of mine since beginning my running journey when I was 20. Please read below and consider donating to an awesome cause.
In 2016, The Sports Museum was fortunate enough to join one of the world's most prestigious road racing events, The Boston Marathon, for the first time in our history. With just a total of five (5) entries over the last 2 years, The Sports Museum has been able to raise just under $40,000 for our educational programs!
As we head into 2018, we are very thankful to be able to continue our Boston Marathon Team with three (3) entries. This year, our philanthropic efforts will again be dedicated to our award-winning educational program that leverages the power and example of Boston sports to help stop bullying in our schools and in our community, Boston vs. Bullies.
Boston vs. Bullies is an educational program that is provided to schools and organizations across Massachusetts free of charge. The video-based program features current athletes from all of Boston’s sports teams and provides kids with practical guidance, strategies and options grounded in the latest anti-bullying research. Since the full rollout began in Fall 2013, Boston vs. Bullies has impacted more than 50,000 students (grades 5-6), 1,000 teachers and 215 schools and organizations.
Thank you for supporting The Sports Museum 2018 Boston Marathon Team.
Let’s win this one together!
