After Monday's tragic event at the 2013 Boston Marathon, I (like many others) wanted to support the city of Boston.
In less than two weeks, I will be running the Nike Women's Half Marathon in Washington DC. From the start of my training, I have been merely running for myself. The goal was to run the half marathon in under two hours, beating my previous personal record. Monday, my goal changed. I will now run this half marathon for the unfinished miles of the Boston Marathon and for the individuals, their families and friends affected most by this heinous bombing.
All donations will be made to The One Fund. "Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Tom Menino have announced the formation of The One Fund Boston, Inc. to help the people most affected by the tragic events that occurred in Boston on April 15, 2013. The One Fund Boston will act as a central fund to receive much needed financial support." --
Please support me with a donation. No amount is too small. The individuals, families and friends affected by this tragedy are going to need help both physically and psychologically. We can help by easing the financial burdens that are sure to develop. Thank you for your support.
