April 15, 2013 is a day most Bostonians, and perhaps even many around the world, will not easily forget. The day of the Boston Marathon is usually a fantastic day in and around town. The Red Sox play early in the day, schools and many offices are closed, and everyone has a favorite place to camp out and watch the runners. On this day, however, a great Boston tradition was marred by horrific and tragic events.
Like many others, I knew I had to find a way to run the race in 2014. I knew I had to help prove that the cowardly acts of a few can't break the spirit of this amazing event. Unfortunately, I also knew there was no way I'd ever make the 3 hour and 20 minute qualifying time, so I needed a little help. Thanks to a good friend, I was able to secure a spot on the marathon team of the Greater Boston Food Bank!
There are many deserving causes raising funds on behalf of the marathon, but you'd be hard pressed to find one with a more worthy mission than the Greater Boston Food Bank. In it's role to help fight in the battle to end hunger worldwide, the GBFB annually helps more than 394,000 people. Together now, the GBFB and I are asking for your help!
Please help me raise money to support the fight to end hunger, and please help me to run for those who cannot run for themselves.
