Dear Family and Friends,
Since coming to Tufts four years ago, it has been a goal of mine to run the Boston Marathon during my senior year...and now I actually do have the opportunity!! I am lucky enough to be running this April in the 2015 Boston Marathon as a member of the Tufts Marathon Team (TMT). The Tufts Marathon Team is the largest known collegiate marathon program in the US with 100 runners.
As a team, we are aiming to raise money to support nutrition, medical, and fitness programs at Tufts University, including research on childhood obesity at the Friedman School of Nutrition and Science and Policy.
I would greatly appreciate your support as I take on this amazing challenge! You are welcome to make a gift directly online here on my fundraising page, or, if you prefer, you can mail in a pledge form to pay by check or credit card offline. Here is a link to the pledge form: http://giving.tufts.edu/pdf/marathonpledge.pdf. Only a few dollars are appreciated, and the minimum to give via credit card is $10.
I must say that the main reason why I love TMT so much (and why I wake up for the early morning long runs in the freezing cold every week) is our extremely dedicated and inspiring Coach Don Megerle. He has been nothing but kind and generous to the other runners and me, faithfully providing us with water and a plethora of delicious fruit at every run with a huge smile on his face.
If you have any further questions about TMT, feel free to contact me or even Coach Megerle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you very much for your support!
