EVENT: 2012 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 16, 2012
Mileage Tracker: 115
I cannot believe how blessed I am and how amazing God's creativity is; I have an opportunity to run the Boston Marathon to raise money for those in need. I'm embracing the challenge of taking on the 26.2 miles I'll need to run on April 16th, but these will be empty miles unless I have your support through prayers and donations. Please consider donating - every little bit helps, and you can rest assured knowing that your money is going to help our brothers and sisters in need. But above all please pray that God will use myself, my teammates, The Salvation Army, and all Christians to show the love and support of Christ to everyone in the world.

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.
