Thanks for taking the time to visit my fundraising page for the 2015 Boston Marathon! I've grown up watching the Boston Marathon. Whether I was at Wellesley College with friends, Natick center with my dad, or on Beacon Street at BU I've never missed a year. I always told myself "When I grow up, I'm going to run the marathon." It always seemed in the distant future and part of me didn't think I'd ever actually do it. At the end of December I began to acknowledge that I would not be returning to Wesleyan until the fall. It felt like this great expanse of time lay ahead of me when all I wanted was to be back on campus. Then I asked myself a question- what challenge could I undertake before I return to school that will push me in ways I've never been challenged before and one I would need to resolutely commit to? As I write this on January 23, I am two weeks into my training to run 26.2 miles on Monday April 20, 2015. Now that I have the pleasure to run for a charity as wonderful as the Rodman Ride for Kids I'm not stopping until Copley Square. Any support along the way is greatly appreciated and I would always love a running buddy! Here's a little more about Rodman...
The Rodman Ride for Kids is an umbrella matching gift charity raising funds for youth-focused social service agencies that support at-risk children in Massachusetts.
The Ride for Kids and our 47 affiliated charities fundraise year-round, culminating with the Ride event, a 25, 50 and 100 mile non-competitive cyling tour that will be held on Saturday, September 26, 2015.
Our mission is to have every child in our community live as we would want our own children to live.
All expenses associated with the Ride are underwritten, allowing every donated dollar to directly impact at-risk kids.
The Ride was founded in 1991 and to date we have raised over $94 million for at-risk kids in Massachusetts.
