THE STORY:

For as long as I can remember, I grew up watching the Boston Marathon from the roof of my father’s office. If you followed that iconic blue and yellow finish line up the buildings of Boylston Street, it would cross directly over his desk.  I watched thousands of people, including many friends and family members, cross that line. And over those years, the desire to be one of those people has only intensified.  

The Boston Marathon means something different to everyone: a party-filled day off, a celebration of the Bostonian spirit, or a lifelong dream of running those streets concluding a 26.2-mile-long journey. Runners travel from around the world for this race, and I’m proud/nervous/excited/anxious to say I’ll be one of them this April. This will be my third marathon, and without question, the most special.

On April 18, I will be running the 120th Boston Marathon with John Hancock in support of the Ron Burton Training Village (RBTV). Founded by former New England Patriots player Ron Burton, Sr., RBTV began as the effort of one man and his family trying to help kids in New England.

Focusing on their physical, spiritual and educational growth, RBTV campers are supported and mentored in some of life's most essential areas including: education, social skills, morals, values, leadership and fitness. When the majority of the youth who attend RBTV are economically disadvantaged, living in at-risk situations and appear to have no chance in life, RBTV shows that there are people who care about them and their future. The property’s buildings and landscape give campers a reason to pause and reflect, and are meant to promote "beautiful thoughts."  Many of these kids come from places where they’ve never actually been in a garden.  Just think about that. 

I’ve visited the camp, looked these young men in the eye and shaken their hands, and witnessed first-hand the incredible impact RBTV has had. I swore that when I ran the Boston Marathon someday, it would be in support of RBTV.  And that “someday” is now.
 
Please help me get to the starting line in Hopkington, and I'll take care of running to Boston with goosebumps, tear-filled eyes, and a pride-filled heart.

Love, Peace, Patience, Humility.
