Thanks for coming to this page! I’ve gotten into running the over the past two years and it’s become a major hobby for me. This is particularly crazy because I was always the chubby kid with arthritis and never thought I’d be a runner.
I am proud to say that I will run the 2018 Boston Marathon as a member of the Lenny Zakim Fund (LZF) team! The chance to complete this personal milestone while assisting a group with a mission I support was something I coulnd't pass up.
Your support of Team LZF will allow The Lenny Zakim Fund to continue to support and strengthen programs that are addressing important issues in our communitites -- programs that provide English classes for new Americans, address and stop youth violence, build homes for low income families, and much, much more!
