THE STORY:

I'm going to be 50 years old on June 9th and one of the great things about my age is I can be a curmadgeon and not give a shit what anybody thinks.   But. If I'm going to be gratuitous about my birthday I'd like to help the four non-profits that I've helped over the years and have helped me by putting up with my bullshit:

- Dana Farber Marathon Challenge - Gave them the best 14 years of my life and they returned it in kind. (http://www.rundfmc.org)
- The Arthritis Foundation of Massachussets - Gave me a start in coaching and I have Arthritis and they are really good people to work with.  Salt of the earth types and somehow I wound up working there. Still think of them as family. (http://www.arthritis.org/massachusetts/)
- Back on My Feet - I'm executive director at the Boston Chapter and the things we can do with a staff of four dedicated and equally old people (except for you B.loved) would astound you. (http://boston.backonmyfeet.org/Boston-Landing.html)
- Dreamfar High School Marathon (DHSM) - They help kids like few programs can and with a whole lot less than most.  I boss around their president and give her grief which in that alone I should get buried in money.  I named my fundraising effort after her..   (http://www.dreamfarhsm.org/)

My goal is to raise $500 for DHSM.  Why DHSM?  Because Crowdrise only lets me raise money for one organization at a time but please do visit the sites for my other folks and donate in my name.  Why $500? Cause I'm a pessimist when it comes to this fundraising stuff. Why people hire me to raise funds is beyond me.  $500 will get a couple of troubled kids through a season of DHSM and then hopefully onto college and bigger things.
