Beth O'Grady via Crowdrise
September 14, 2014
BENEFITING: Boys and Girls Club of Greater Salem, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Sep 12, 2014
Steve's Team was founded in 2003 in memory of Stephen M. O'Grady, Boys & Girls Club of Greater Salem Executive Director, who was killed by a drunk driver less than a week after his 30th birthday in September 1999. Beth O'Grady and Lisa Rose kicked off fundraising efforts by completing the 2003 Boston Marathon, the first marathon for both of us. 11 years later, Steve's Team runs on and has raised $53,300 to date! The next challenge for Beth & Lisa is to take on the Reach the Beach Relay, a multi-day 200 mile run September 12-13 from Cannon Mountain to Hampton Beach, NH. We will be part of a team of 12 runners who will take turns running continuously day and night until we reach the finish line. Sounds like fun, huh?! As part of our commitment, we are asking friends and family to help us reach our fundraising goal of $2,000, with all proceeds benefiting the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Salem.
As an extra bonus, each donation of $25 will enter you into a raffle to win two premium seats at the 1 pm Patriot's game on Sunday, September 21st. And the only thing better than great seats for an early season, early afternoon Patriot's game is finishing this relay for the Boys & Girls Club!
Thank you for considering a donation!
Steve's Team is fueled by friendship - thank you all!
