ORGANIZER: The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp
EVENT: 2013 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 15, 2013
I am honored once again to be raising money and running for the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp. This great camp provides children who have experienced way to much pain and hardship in their lives with an experience they will never forget. Please help me reach my lofty goal and help a sick child attend summer camp at this unbelievable camp.
Kelly and I were drawn to this charity in 2006, when Kelly was a Team Hole in the Wall Member and ran the NYC Marathon. Kelly has fond memories of camps similar to the Hole in the Wall Gang, as her brother, Kyle, attended similar camps growing up with a chronic illness. In 2007, both Kelly and I ran the NYC Marathon with Team Hole in the Wall and had the opportunity to visit the Camp. Throughout the years, we have been consistenly impressed with every volunteer, employee, Team member we've met. An amazing group of people and a fantastic charity.
Last year, I was part of the 2012 Boston Marathon Team Hole in the Wall, however, an injury kept me from being able to run the marathon. This year, I'm excited again to be running the marathon for Team Hole in the Wall and look forward to my efforts being able to send 2 sick children to camp.
