THE STORY:

On Monday, April 15th, 2013, I will run my second Boston Marathon to raise $10,000 for Metropolitan Boston Housing Partnership

MBHP has been called "the safety net for the safety net" by other social service agencies who look to them for help with clients with severe mental illness, domestic abuse, and chronic homelessness. They serve many of the street homeless in the greater Boston area, as well as providing housing stabilization, rental assistance, foreclosure prevention, and home modification loans to our neighbors in Boston and surrounding communities.

I invite you to check out the annual report to learn more about how MBHP supports thousands of low- and fixed-income Boston-area families in maintaining their housing, fostering economic self-sufficiency, and improving overall quality of life. 

How to Help

You can join Team MBHP with a gift of $26, $262, $500, $1,000 or more. Follow us to keep up with fun prizes, special events, and training updates.  Many small donations are just as powerful as one big one, so please share this page with friends, and lead by example by giving what you can.

If you would prefer to pay by check* or set up a recurring monthly donation through your bank's website, please put  "Carolyn - Marathon" in the memo field, and direct to:

Metropolitan Boston Housing Partnership

Attn: Jesse Edsell-Vetter

125 Lincoln St., 5th floor

Boston, MA 02111

* Crowdrise charges charities approx. 5% on each transaction.

Why I'm Running

This year, Jesse & I celebrate two significant 10-year anniversaries: 10 years of marriage, and 10 years as part of the Metropolitan Boston Housing Partnership family. When we got married, we pledged, "to create a Jewish home committed to peace and deeds of loving-kindness...a warm, welcoming home, open to all."

In the last 10 years, we have been glad to welcome many of you to our home. More importantly, with your help, we have made strides (figurative and literal) to allow others to have a place to call home.  By reaching our $20,000 goal in April 2013, we will have raised more than $50,000 to support innovative programs and services at MBHP. I encourage you to read personal stories about the lives changed by MBHP, and ask what running 26.2 miles to end homelessness is worth to you.

Ten years ago, Jesse and I promised that, "We will share generously of what we are given, and we will try always to remember that whatever we have or lack, and wherever we are, our souls dwell together." In the months to come, our soles will dwell togehter on the streets of Boston, as our family trains to go the distance for MBHP.
