As I train for the Boston Marathon on April 15th, 2013, and overcome the hurdles created by weather, injuries, and stamina, I think about the people who have real life challenges and hope to make a difference one step—one person—at a time. With 30 runners on Team Project Hope Boston Marathon 2013, if we all contribute at least $5000 to Project Hope, then we will make more than $150,000 that will directly benefit families in need. That's hope.
Project Hope has been in existence for many years assisting inner city families to move up and out of poverty. They work with families every day to help them believe in their own possibilities and break through the barriers that keep them poor. Project Hope fosters their journey through personal transformation and celebrates with them as they achieve economic security for themselves and their children. The funds we raise will be applied to the agency's core services: homelessness prevention; adult education and ESOL classes; training and access to jobs that pay career level wages; high-quality day care; and providing emergency shelter services and ongoing case management for families in crisis. http://www.prohope.org
