BENEFITING: Special Olympics Massachusetts
ORGANIZER: Special Olympics Massachusetts
EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
I'm thrilled to be running in the 121st Boston Marathon as a member of the Special Olympics Team. I became involved with the Special Olympics for the first time in 2016 through my company Travelers Insurance. My partner and I volunteered at the Summer Olympics in Boston and we were so impressed with the dedication, commitment and pride of the athletes competing that day. The experience made a lasting impression on me and I have asked my family, including my two daughters Fallon and Ivy, and friends to participate this coming year. I was so honored to be approached by the Special Olympics to represent and raise money for this wonderful organization in the Boston Marathon.
I am a life-long athlete, having run four previous marathons, five triatholons and numerous other local races. It has been a goal to do one more marathon before I turn 50 on May 1st, so this opportunity is a dream come true.
I have committed to raising $8500 for the inspiring athletes of the Special Olympics and I would like to ask for your support in meeting my fundraising goal. Every donation counts and I would appreciate any amount you feel you are able to give.
