THE STORY:

 

To make a long story short, both of my brothers Michael and Conor have run the Boston marathon.  And, while I have enjoyed cheering them on from the sideline each year they run, I have also felt pangs of envy and a competitive urge to join them.  However, my fear of failure, and desire to watch the Red Sox on Patriots Day always kept me a spectator. 

This year I was approached by my 2nd home and place of employment, Codman Academy.  They asked if I would consider running the marathon to raise money for the school’s athletic and wellness program.  This was the push I needed to finally gather up all my courage and face my fears. 

Codman Academy holds a special place in my heart.  I have been the Dean of Enrichment and/or Dean of College and Alumni Advising there for the past 5 years. I have watched our faculty work 12 hour days and weekends to change the life and trajectory of our students.  I believe in the work that we do and the education we provide to our phenomenal students. What better way to run my first marathon than to raise money for a cause that I am deeply invested in and committed to. 

CODMAN ACADEMY FOUNDATION wrote -

Team Codman is thrilled to be a part of the John Hancock Boston Marathon Non-Profit Program for the second year.  Given Codman Academy's emphasis on health and wellness, this partnership is a natural fit.  All funds raised through our marathon team will be applied toward Codman’s Wellness program, which encompasses our physical fitness program as well as our nutrition and health program. 

Codman has been recognized as the first and highest scoring school in the state to win the Gold-Level Massachusetts School Wellness Award, given by the MA Department of Elementary and Secondary Education and the MA Department of Public Health.  We have been able to accomplish this without an on-site gym or athletic fields.  In addition to providing sports teams such as soccer, volleyball, basketball, track, and baseball, Codman also offers activities such as swim lessons, strength and cardio classes in conjunction with the Dorchester YMCA.  We provide our entire student body with YMCA memberships so they can continue to exercise outside of school.

Codman also has a student-run Nutrition Action Club, which works to educate the student body on nutrition and health initiatives.  We are a 100% junk food free school, which means that no junk food is allowed on campus.  We provide healthy lunches and snacks for our students every day.

All donations will go toward the costs of operating our Wellness Program, including facility rental fees, modest coaching stipends, equipment, uniform costs, and healthy snacks.  Thank you for supporting this valuable program!
