EVENT: 2013 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 15, 2013
In 2012, I completed my first ever Boston Marathon in record-setting 90 degree temperatures. Additionally, with your support I was able to raise over $5,000 for Team MBHP (Metropolitan Boston Housing Partnership, Inc.)—an organization that supports thousands of low and fixed income Boston area residents in maintaining their housing, fostering economic self-sufficiency, and improving overall quality of life.
The support that I received from so many of you in 2012 was truly inspiring—so much so that I could not turn down the opportunity to run again in 2013. So once again, I am asking for your support by sponsoring my running in the 117th annual Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013. My personal goal, with your help, is to raise at least $5,000 and to run the 26.2 miles in under five hours. I am hopeful that my contributions will average $50-$100 per donation, although no amount is too small and any amount will be very much appreciated.
Training is off to a great start so far, and is made far easier and more enjoyable by my fellow training buddies, who keep me both disciplined and motivated in achieving these goals. I thank you for your continued support.
With love and best wishes for 2013,
