EVENT: 2013 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 15, 2013
My name is Shanell Mosley and I am running the 2013 Boston Marathon for the Boston Scholar Athletes Program! This will be my first year running the marathon and I’m so thrilled to be able to run for an organization I hold so close to my heart. Last year’s runners had so many generous supporters and this year, I hope that we can top that! I have committed to raising $7,500 for BSA. Please join my journey to the finish and help me reach my goal!
I have been involved with this program for a year now through working directly with the scholar-athletes throughout the city of Boston. I have helped students prepare for college through SAT preparation, create a road map to college, and explore new and innovative ways to become scholar-athletes both on and off the field/court. The beautiful thing about the work that I do is that I have the unique opportunity to influence young people by being both a teacher and a mentor. The relationships that I've built with students is priceless!
Many of the students that I work with face daily challenges in their home and in their communities. I am running 26.2 miles to prove to them that anything is possible! Despite the obstacles or complications that may stand in their way, I want to show them that if they put their mind to something, work hard enough, and are dedicated that they can accomplish greatness!
