This year, thanks to the John Hancock Invitational Runners Program, my fourth consecutive Boston Marathon is also a fundraiser to benefit the programs and services of the CFP Board Center for Financial Planning.
For me financial planning has been more than a career, it is a calling. A noble profession that provides me with a unique opportunity to make a real difference in peoples’ lives.
I’m excited and proud to be running to raise awareness and funds that support the Center’s vision – that every hard working American has the ability to work with a financial planner who will help them reach major milestones and live their lives the way they want to without risking financial insecurity.
I’m a strong believer that our profession needs young, diverse talent to step up and serve the public. The talent is out there, but many are not yet aware of our rewarding profession. With CFP Board and the Center driving awareness and trust within and beyond the industry, we can ensure American’s financial futures are safe in the hands of a CFP® professional.
I’ve run nine marathons and there is a certain joy and sense of accomplishment I gain from crossing the finish line each time. Marathons, like a lot of things in life, take time, effort, dedication and drive. Having ran the Boston Marathon before, I know that some of the thoughts that will cross my mind as I push through the miles will be the great support team behind me and my cause—the CFP Board Center for Financial Planning. Your gift means so much to me and I hope to be able to thank you for it in person after the race. Till then!
