Growing up in Maine, I enjoyed running and used it as a way to think and relax. Through ups and downs in life, I was able to run trails.
In Boston, I volunteer through the Junior League of Boston (JLBoston). Our focus is the nutrition and wellness of girls, developing tomorrow's healthy women leaders. We have several direct service projects in greater Boston area that involve mentoring girls and providing stuctured after school or weekend programming. We teach healthy cooking, expand girls' knowledge of the arts, and do community service projects with girls who in some cases have always been on the receiving side and wish to now be the one giving back to the community.
In 2014-2015, I will serve on the Board of Directors as the Director of Community Service. Next year JLBoston will kick off a new Run Club for girls, which will give girls an opportunity to develop a passion for physical activity and build confidence through setting and accomplishing goals. Girls on the Run is an awesome organization, which helped inspire our project.
By sponsoring me in the Chicago Marathon, together we are working toward Girls on the Run's vision: a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams.
