THE STORY:

The 2 things a gal needs to run the Boston Marathon:

 

HEART&SOLE

I’ve got heart and I’ve got sole

Running the Boston Marathon is the ultimate goal

With your support and generous donation

You can also show your admiration

For the important work that GoKids does

As I run for them I will succeed, because

You cheer me on and show your pride

You will be with me each & every stride

Peace and Love,

Coley ( :

 

 

In April, I will be running the 2012 Boston Marathon as a charity runner for the GoKids team. The GoKids organization ‘empowers kids to grow up healthy’ through exercise and healthy living. As a teacher and coach, the mission statement GoKids instills in kids parallels the same ideas I teach as a coach of Winsor swimming and Brookline High School softball, as well as to my art students at St. Theresa’s School. It has always been a goal of mine to help kids grow into confident and healthy adults. I strive to make fitness activities fun and continuously try to challenge and encourage my athletes and students through physical activities. I encourage them to push and better themselves physically, mentally, and creatively to reach their own goals.

As a part of the GoKids team, I will be training with charity teams over the next couple of months to prepare myself for the challenges this 26.2 mile race will bring. Through my training and upon completion of this race, I hope to set an example for my students and athletes about how hard work can help them reach their goals. Please help me support this wonderful charity by donating to my page.  Thank you in advance for all of your love and support and please feel free to forward this to anyone who you think might be interested in donating as well.  Your contributions in helping me reach my goal of raising money for GoKids and running the 2012 Boston Marathon are greatly appreciated.

Since this is my 1st big race, I have no running pictures to put on my page. They will be coming soon!

Thank you,

Coley

 

Here is a little more about GoKids:

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS FOUNDATION INC wrote -

Welcome runners, friends, and partners to the GoKids Boston Marathon Fundraising Page!

GoKids Boston embodies innovation and leadership in youth health through life-changing programs, groundbreaking research, exceptional training opportunities, and dedication to the community with a focus on eliminating health disparities.

GoKids Boston, a key strategic initiative of Chancellor Keith Motley, was founded at UMass Boston in 2006 in collaboration with Children's Hospital Boston to advance the science relating exercise to youth health and wellness and to become a local leader in combating the obesity epidemic. 

GoKids Boston's unique youth fitness, training, and research center based at the University of Massachusetts Boston's College of Nursing and Health Sciences strives to 1) reduce the impact of obesity on children, families, and communities through service research partnerships, 2) improve children's lives through fitness and supportive relationships, and 3) enlist youth and professionals as health ambassadors.  

GoKids provides low income, multi-ethnic youth with engaging physical activity and nutrition education programs aimed at preventing and treating obesity and chronic disease in our safe and supportive environment (a 5,300 square foot fitness center.)  Equally important, we provide a training center where College of Nursing and Health Sciences faculty and students produce significant research.  The center exemplifies a health promotion-focused youth development program by translating current science into innovative programs and by collaborating with primary care providers, schools, and other community resources.
