EVENT: 2013 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 15, 2013
I am running my first marathon for the Bottom Line Foundation. Bottom Line helps disadvantaged students get into college and graduate by providing them with personalized support from college applications until graduation. They currently serve students from Massachusetts and New York through two programs: College Access and College Success. Working in a low-income educational district, I personally see the struggles these students face everyday. My goal is to raise $5,000 for this orgainzation and to help these students gain an education and create a future for themselves. Any donation would be very much appreciated!

Bottom Line was founded in 1997 to help low-income and first-generation students get in to college, graduate from college, and go far in life. Since then, we have provided one-on-one guidance and mentoring to thousands of high school and college students. This year, we will be providing personalized support to over 2,000 students across Massachusetts and New York.
Bottom Line's 2013 Boston Marathon Team (Team Go Far) will run 26.2 miles on April 15th as a way to contribute to our organization and the students we support. We're hoping to raise more than $100,000 this year through our marathon team, which makes a huge impact on our organization.
I hope you'll consider making a contribution to the team or a specific runner. Each member of Team Go Far has an interesting story and a personal motivation for our cause. I encourage you to get to know them.
Thank you. Whatever you can contribute will help our students get in, graduate, and go far!
