THE STORY:

Dear Friends:

On April 15, I will be running the Boston Marathon to help raise funds for Urban Improv/Freelance Players.

Urban Improv is a long-running and exceptional nonprofit youth development program in Boston.  It uses improvisational theater as a method to help our city’s youth explore pathways to good decisions. Professional actors work with students in structured improv scenes to teach skills in violence prevention, conflict resolution, and sound decision-making.  Over the past 20 years, Urban Improv has made a positive difference in the lives of countless kids in our community.  See http://www.urbanimprov.org for more.

One point of clarification: some people, upon learning of this effort, have said something like: "Wow, I didn't know you could run a marathon!"  In candor, I admit that as of right now this is pretty far from an established fact.  I've certainly never run any distance remotely close to 26.2 miles before, so in part this will be a test of the extent to which training and attitude can make up for experience and ability.
The deal I am offering is this: I will do all of the training and running, and you can help with a donation of whatever size appropriately reflects how inspiring, or amusing, you find this prospect.  

Of course, the real work is done every day by the dedicated staff and the students taking part in Urban Improv's programs, but together we can help them continue.

Thanks for reading this.  If you’d like to donate, please click the "Donate" button and make your donation. Thank you.
