Dear Friends and Family: Well, we go AGAIN. As James Bond once said: NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN.
I am so excited to run the 2014 Boston Marathon for the Charlestown Boys and Girls Club. It is also a privilege to run the marathon as a Boston resident to show the world how our city has recovered and we are "Boston Strong" This is my 6th marathon and it has been 13 years since I ran my first marathon. (13 is my favorite number, so it is a sign for me to RUN AGAIN!)
So why run for the C'Town Boys & Girls Club? The Boys and Girls Club is a SAFE haven for Charlestown Youth since 1893! Over the past 120 years, thousands of boys and girls have found a place that supports them and challenges them to discover their talents and reach their full potential. The programs the club offers help young adults create aspirations for the future, providing opportunities for career exploration and education enhancement. These initiatives develop young people's capacity to engage in positive behaviors that nurture their own well-being, set personal goals and live successfully as self-sufficient adults.
Your contribution will be directed to help the Club with many pressing needs including technology upgrades, equipment, supplies for education and arts programs, new furnishing and basics like uniforms for sports teams. The Charlestown Club has over 600 members, many that are underprivileged and truly benefit from the programs the Club offers. The Club provides the means for many underprivileged children to attend Summer camps that their families would never be able to afford.
I APPRECIATE YOUR SUPPORT IN ADVANCE. My training is going well.....a few aches and pains, but I'm getting the appropriate miles in each week! I will keep you posted on my training!
