EVENT DATE: Apr 15, 2013
My name is Liz Collins and I am running the 2013 Boston Marathon for the Boston Scholar Athletes Program. This will be the second year that I have run the marathon for BSA! Last year, we had so many generous supporters and this year, I hope we can top that! I have committed to raising $8000 for BSA. Please help me reach my goal!
I have been involved with this program for 3 years in a number of different ways. For 2 years, I tutored a young woman who went to school in Brighton. Through hard work and determination, she was able to achieve a beaming GPA and head to college. I was so proud to watch her walk across the stage at her high school graduation knowing her future would be bright. Not only was I able to help motivate her, but she taught me a lot about perseverance and purpose!
This year, I was involved in helping plan the 1st annual Boston Scholar Athletes Zone Party at the TD Garden. This event was geared toward educating the city of Boston about this program and spread the word of all BSA's achievements to date. I was so inspired by all of the scholar-athletes in the city of Boston, I knew I wanted to run the marathon for BSA again.
I couldn’t be happier to run 26 miles for this program! I encourage you to get involved and support our BSA marathon team!
