THE STORY:

Help me support Pathways to Education- and run the Boston Marathon!

I’m INCREDIBLY excited and fortunate to be able to run one of the world’s most prestigious races this April- the Boston Marathon! Those of you who know me, know I’m not a runner- I’ve never run a race…unless you count a brief stint of track and field when I was 13.

BUT those of you who know me, also know I’m always up for an adventure! I’m taking this seriously and have been training hard since October to be able to run this race as best I can!

Life is full of amazing opportunities- and I have been blessed with so many opportunities thanks to the support I’ve received from friends, family and even strangers. I wouldn’t have had this opportunity if I wasn’t working for Manulife, and I wouldn’t be working for Manulife if I hadn’t been supported in my pursuit of education.

I’m proud to be raising money for Pathways to Education, an organization dedicated to helping low-income area Canadians graduate from high school. While the average provincial high school dropout rate is around 6 – 10 per cent, in low-income communities and on Aboriginal reserves, the rate can soar to 50 – 60 per cent. There are more than 734,500 at-risk youth in Canada aged 15-24 who are classified as low income. Due to circumstances beyond their control, these young people are at higher risk of dropping out of high school and putting their futures in jeopardy. I encourage you to think about your life, and how your education has opened doors and allowed you to follow your passions.

Please join me in supporting this organization and in supporting my next incredible adventure- running the Boston Marathon!
