EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
I am so thrilled to be running the Boston Marathon as a St. Jude Hero for the second year in a row!
My support of St. Jude began during my time at the University of Vermont where I was a sister in the Delta Delta Delta sorority. St. Jude is our national philanthropy and I was able to travel to to the hospital in 2007. Seeing the outstanding services that the staff and volunteers provide left a lasting impression on me.
During my training for the 2016 Boston Marathon, my love for St. Jude grew even stronger. St. Jude Children's Research Hospital won't stop until no child dies from cancer. They are at the forefront of research and cover treatment, travel and expenses for families and patients. I was able to raise over $13,000 last year and was blessed to be part of an amazing team!
This year, I will be running the 2017 Boston Marathon to help the kids at St. Jude in memory of my grandmother, Ruth Bradbury, and of my uncle, Roy Mucci. Every dollar counts and goes directly to providing treatment and resources to St. Jude. Thank you for your continued support!
