THE STORY:

Thank you for caring and supporting me as I run the 26.2 miles of the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013 to help others in my community have a better life! It's been a cold, snowy season to train in but gratefully I've been healthy and injury free.

South Boston Neighborhood House (SBNH) meets important needs of the underserved and underprivileged seniors, families, single moms, children, and adolescents of South Boston to live healthy, meaningful, and productive lives. www.sbnh.org

Recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize for his accomplishments fighting poverty & disease and promoting democracy and former President Jimmy Carter was asked to discuss the greatest challenge that the world faces. He said " . . . the most serious and universal problem is the growing chasm between the richest and poorest people.

Citizens of the ten wealthiest countries are now seventy-five times richer than those who live in the ten poorest ones, and the separation is increasing every year, not only between nations but also within them. The results of this disparity are root causes of most of the world's unresolved problems, including starvation, illiteracy, environmental degradation, violent conflict, and unnecessary illnesses that range from Guinea worm to HIV/AIDS."

The Apostle Paul wrote about this topic in the book of Corinthians chapter 8:12-15

"For if the willingness is there, the gift is acceptable according to what one has, not according to what he does not have.  Our desire is not that others might be relieved while you are hard pressed, but that there might be equality.  At the present time your plenty will supply what they need, so that in turn their plenty will supply what you need.  Then there will be equality, as it is written:  'He who gathered much did not have too much, and he who gathered too little did not have too little.' "

Maybe you believe like I do that we need to take care of our fellow man since we never know when we may be in a position of need (& not necessarily just financially).  Please visit their website to learn more about the great work this Community Center does! www.sbnh.org

SOUTH BOSTON NEIGHBORHOOD HOUSE INC wrote -

 

One of Boston’s original historic settlement houses, the South Boston Neighborhood House was founded in 1901 with a mission ‘to support family and neighborhood life in South Boston’. Affectionately known as “the Ollie” after our founder, Olivia James, the Neighborhood House has always been notable for the deep ties and connections among participants and families that have endured for generations.

The South Boston Neighborhood House is the oldest continually operating human service agency in the community. Today, the Neighborhood House impacts the lives of 1,800 individuals each year from preschoolers to seniors. Our five program and service areas, Early Education & Care, School Age Programs, Education & Career Development, the Senior “Jet Set” Program and Family Engagement, are designed to work in tandem to strengthen the fabric of family and community life through education and opportunity.

Volunteers are an integral part of life at “the Ollie.” Each year hundreds of amazing individuals and groups donate their time and talent for tutoring and mentoring youth, fundraising events, facility improvements, professional workshops, our holiday gift drive and family engagement events. This year, through the generosity and stewardship of the John Hancock Non-Profit Marathon Program, we welcome a new group of champions and fundraisers, our 2013 Marathon Team. All of us here at the Ollie would be honored and grateful to have your support for our families, our community, our fantastic Marathon Team and the future we all share.
