BENEFITING: Pathways to Education Canada
ORGANIZER: Pathways to Education Canada
EVENT: 2016 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 18, 2016
I visited Boston for the first time last year as a volunteer and quickly became inspired not only by the runners but by the amazing community that comes together to show their support. Volunteering had such a deep impact on me that I made it my goal, while standing at the finish line, to run Boston in 2016.
Although I have dabbled in the world of running, this will be my first Marathon/race and I would be lying if I didn't admit that I am absolutely terrified to do this. What keeps me motivated, however, is not only the need to accomplish my own goal but the fact that I have opportunity to raise money and awareness for Pathways for Education - an incredible charitable organization which focuses on empowering lower income youth to graduate high school.
As well, I would ask for you to consider donating what you can. Every little bit helps!
Your support means a lot to me so thank you, thank you, thank you!
Go team! Pathways to Education is thrilled to partner with Manulife and John Hancock for the fourth time at the 2016 Boston Marathon. We’re inspired by the runners training hard and flexing their fundraising muscles for an important cause: Pathways to Education Programs in 17 communities across Canada. Good luck runners and thank you to everybody supporting this committed team.
