THE STORY:

Although I SWORE I would never run another marathon, here I am--and I'm so excited!  After Steven decided to train for and run the Boston Marathon, I promised to train with him--even though I could not get a bib to run.  Then today, I discovered that the Wellesley ABC Charity was looking for more runners to run the Boston Marathon and fundraise for them in the process.  I jumped at the chance and I hope you will help me support this fantastic charity.

The Wellesley ABC program stands for A Better Chance and it helps academically promising, teenage girls of color from disadvantaged communities get the education they need and deserve.  The Wellesley ABC program brings these girls from all over the country to live in a house on the Wellesley College campus and attend Wellesley High.  The girls have access to all that Wellesley High has to offer academically, socially and athletically and they are supported during their four years at WHS and guided into their future thereafter.  The ABC program is a tremendous program and it affects change for such deserving young women.

In order to run, I need to raise $4,000.00 for this charity, and I hope that you can help me get there!
