Hello Family and Friends,
I have been given the incredible opportunity to run the Boston Marathon on April 16, 2012 in support of the Boston Medical Center. Training is already underway, as I walked to and from the train today. And since one needs plenty of energy to exercise, I have increased my daily allowance of chocolate chip cookies and brownies. Sounds great right? Now about that running...In all seriousness, BMC is a wonderful cause and serves so many people throughout the Boston area, I am proud to support the BMC with my fundraising efforts.
Many thanks for your generosity!
