BENEFITING: MASSACHUSETTS PROJECT 351 INC
ORGANIZER: MASSACHUSETTS PROJECT 351 INC
EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
I am lucky to have been chosen to run the 2015 Boston Marathon in support of Project 351. This worthy organization celebrates the power of young people as a force for positive change in their communities and our Commonwealth.
Each year, a deserving 8th grader from each of Massachusetts' 351 communities is chosen to serve as Ambassador. Through service, leadership development, enrichment, and friendship with a statewide community of peers, Ambassadors build skills and confidence, explore issues, embrace leadership, and motivate a lifetime of service.
I think back to what I was doing when I was 13, it makes what these kids do that much more admirable.
