Hello Friends, Family, & Generous Donors!
My name is Doug and I am a member of the 2013 buildOn Boston Marathon Team!!!!!! I have been able to turn my passion for running into something much greater by joining forces with buildOn.
I was introduced to buildOn through a dear friend who has been connected to this organization for about 7 years. She journeyed to Nicaragua during the summer of 2009 to help buildOn break the cycle of poverty, illiteracy and low expectations through service and education. I was inspired by her story and thought it was time for me to get involved. I looked into volunteering and came across this opportunity and thought it would be a great way to raise money for a great organization!
Now that I am officially on the team the hard work begins. I have a lot of work ahead of me and need your help. Please take the time to visit buildOn's website and learn more about this great organization and I ask for your donations to help me achieve my goal of raising $5500 dollars by race day (4/15/13). All funds raised through this marathon initiative will go directly to buildOn and help further their mission here in the US and throughout the world.
