Apparently, once wasn’t enough. I tried to stay away—I really did! But the spirit and beauty of this event is in my blood and I had to again challenge myself physically and mentally to take on the 26.2 miles from Hopkinton to Boston. This coming April 18, 2016, I will once again be running the Boston Marathon with Team John Hancock in support of the Ron Burton Training Village and the Boys and Girls Clubs of Boston.
The support and encouragement I received from everyone in 2014 was overwhelming and humbling. Donations came from so many people: from lifelong friends and family, to high-school classmates I hadn’t seen in decades, to runners I had met that very morning who were working toward the same goal as I was—to run and finish the historic Boston Marathon. It truly illustrates the kindness and generosity of the human spirit.
I again turn to you to help me in this endeavor! I am again raising money to support two incredible charities that have had long-standing relationships with John Hancock: The Boys and Girls Clubs of Boston and the Ron Burton Training Village. Both organizations bring hope and opportunity to Boston’s youth, and you can read more about each of these charities below. Your dollars go directly to the charities and support brighter futures.
