BENEFITING: The MGH Institute of Health Professions, Inc.
EVENT: 2016 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 18, 2016
Can’t say that I ever thought I would be writing a blurb like this one but isn’t life funny sometimes?! I will be tackling my first marathon April 18th, 2016 in my hometown of Boston, MA. I was recently chosen to run as part of my graduate school’s team, MGH Institute of Health Professions in Charlestown, MA. I will be raising money for their Community Service Fund with the goal of supporting students’ initiatives to get out of the classroom and get involved in the greater Charlestown community. Some past projects have included educating Charlestown youth on healthy eating habits and promoting knowledge of the variety of health care careers available today. With the money I raise, I hope to expand upon one of those projects or create a new one.
While I’m busy training through the lovely New England winter, you have the easy part! Please consider donating to my fundraising campaign by clicking on the link to the right. A donation of any size makes a huge difference and I am so appreciative of your consideration.
Hope the New Year has been good to you all so far and that I get to see some familiar faces along the 26.2 miles on April 18th. Please let me know if you plan to watch so I can find you on the course!
