EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
I am honored and beyond excited to be a member of the Ouimet 2017 Boston Marathon team. This April I will have the opportunity to run 26.2 miles in Boston’s greatest athletic event while bringing recognition to one of Massachusetts’ most important charities, The Francis Ouimet Scholarship Fund. The Ouimet Fund’s purpose is to help deserving young men and women who have worked at golf courses in Massachusetts obtain a college education. The Ouimet Fund is the largest independent scholarship fund in New England giving over $1.7 Million in scholarships in 2015. The Ouimet Fund truly invests in the lives of youths by not only providing them with means to pay for an education but the motivation to put that education to good use. As I personally know people who have benefitted from this fund it gives me even more of a purpose to take on this challenge. With your help and support I am excited to crush my own personal goal of running the Boston Marathon on behalf of an amazing charity.
