Last year I finished my first 26.2 miles at Boston in record-breaking heat and with your generous help, raised $5,500 for buildOn to send a group of underserved youth from Boston to build a school in Malawi!
I'm back to do it again! As the CFO of buildOn, I've seen firsthand how buildOn breaks the cycle of poverty, illiteracy and low expectations through service and education both here in the US and around the world. We've built over 500 schools in Africa, Asia and Central America and our high school students have contributed over 1 million hours of service!
This year, the buildOn Boston Marathon team is raising funds to build a school in Nicaragua, a place I've visited and experienced buildOn's work several times!
I'll do the hard part - run 26.2 miles - if you'll help me achieve my fundraising goal of $5,500! Any donation amount helps get us closer to our goal. Thank you in advance for your support!
