On April 15, 2013, I will run the 117th Boston Marathon. I never thought that I would ever say those words. The opportunity to participate in such an historic event is literally a dream come true. As many of you know, I like to make marathon miles count on more than one level. This time, I will be running on behalf of The Women’s Lunch Place. This Boston based organization provides food, advocacy and guest services to homeless and low-income women all while treating them with dignity and respect. The Women's Lunch Place currently provides a safe, comfortable daytime shelter, nutritious food, and services to more than 150 women and their children each day. Please visit their website at http://www.womenslunchplace.org for more information on this amazing organization. I am once again requesting the assistance of my friends and family to help me meet (and hopefully exceed) my fundraising goal of $5,000. Thank you for your support. I look forward to meeting this incredible challenge while raising funds and awareness for The Women’s Lunch Place.
