BENEFITING: The Salvation Army
ORGANIZER: The Salvation Army
EVENT: 2012 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 16, 2012
My favorite activity is running marathons and my favorite charity is the Salvation Army. My parents were Salvation Army officers for over 40 years inluding an assignment as Divisional Commanders of the Massachusetts division. I have wanted to run the Boston Marathon for 17 years and now is the time to fulfill that dream. I am too slow to get a slot on my own, by qualifying time. Instead I will rely on my friends to help get me to the start line. Thank you for helping me!!

The Massachusetts Division operates 44 centers across the state, providing the broadest array of social services that range from serving food to the hungry, relief for disaster victims, assistance for the disabled, outreach to the elderly and ill, clothing and shelter to the homeless and opportunities for underprivileged children.
