EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
Hello! I'm Heather. Thank you so much for visiting my fundraising page.
I never thought I'd become a runner, but I remember the exact moment the urge struck me. Ten years ago, as I watched the finish line of the Boston Marathon for the first time, a wave of emotion swept over me. It was one of the most beautiful displays of perseverence, hope, and triumph I'd ever experienced. I knew I wanted to do what those runners were doing--but still never imagined it would happen.
For me, running the Boston Marathon means coming full circle, and acheiving what seemed impossible all those years ago. In addition to this incredible feat, I have been blessed with the opportunity to raise money for an incredible cause--Project Hope.
Project Hope helps families believe in their own possibilities and break through the barriers that keep them poor. Running for them symbolizes the struggles of those families: hard work, dedication, and commitment to reaching the finish line. The journey of 26.2 miles, and all the months of training leading up to it, gives Project Hope the opportunity to raise vital funds by connecting to new sources of support. Thank you for supporting our team. Your support directly impacts homeless families in Boston.
Not sure how much to give? Here's an idea of how far your gift goes:
