EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
Running has changed my life. And I absolutely love being able to change others’ lives through my running. In just over 2 months, I will be embarking on the most famous 26.2 miles anywhere – the 121st Boston Marathon. After last year’s fantastic experience, I decided I had to give it a second go. And this time I’m doing it to support community college programs in Boston. As a community college professor (and two-time graduate!) myself, I understand the important role that local affordable colleges play for many of the most vulnerable and desperate members of our community. I’m committed to helping raise money that will support efforts to give more inner-city students the same kind of opportunities I had. My goal in running the Boston Marathon is to raise $5,000 for the Roxbury Community College Foundation. Will you help me support these students by contributing to my effort? I’m asking all my friends and colleagues to consider making a $100 tax deductible donation. Are you able to help? I know through the generosity of my friends and colleagues I will exceed my goal.
