THE STORY:

The journey out of homelessness requires many steps – as does running 26.2 miles. That’s why Team St. Francis House assists our marathon runners with their fundraising efforts, so that they can help hundreds of homeless men and women who want to rebuild their lives.

By supporting Team St. Francis House, you will help the most vulnerable among us take one step forward, then another and another until they achieve independence from shelters and institutions.

Team St. Francis House's fundraising goal is ambitious – $25,000 – because we believe that no one is beyond hope. If you agree, please make a generous gift today. And join us on March 1st for a pre-marathon Race to the Finish Line event, hosted by the Friends of Frank, a group of young professionals who support our mission of ending homelessness in Greater Boston. For more details, visit www.stfrancishouse.org/marathon2012.

Together, we can empower our neighbors to go the distance and be victorious in life. That’s the most important race of all.

Chris Hunter is Vice President of Institutional Services at Natixis Global Asset Management and one of four runners on Team St. Francis House. Like many people who grew up in Boston, Chris remembers watching the marathon on TV and being both impressed and “a little freaked out” by the sea of runners who pushed themselves along the grueling 26.2 mile course. Chris never expected to complete the route himself. He started running with a modest goal: feel less winded when sprinting for a train to work. Yet the more he ran, the more he enjoyed the activity. “I like how running causes you to see things in a new light or maybe notice things that hadn't caught your attention before,” he says. “I find myself more amazed each year how quickly time passes and running in a strange way slows things down.” When Chris ran his first marathon, in 2007, he felt “as if I experienced a miracle,” he recalls. Since then, he has completed four more marathons, and he looks forward to running Boston again. “Runners are generally really fun people who don't take themselves too seriously, and I think it is a cool way to bond with people in professional, social and charitable circles,” he explains. Chris believes that running, “like a lot of things in life, is about showing up. I am a believer in relentless forward progress, even be it slow progress.”
