THE STORY:

Thanks so much for visiting my fundraising page.   This will be my first marathon ever and I am  thrilled that it will be in Boston!  When we were little, my dad would take us to the starting line in Hopkinton.  I have fond memories of all the people and excitement surrounding the race.  But it was when I watched from Boylston Street and saw the emotions of the runners as they crossed the finish line, that I knew I wanted to be a part of this incredible athletic accomplishment.    

 

I am so fortunate to have been accepted onto the Tenacity charity team.    Tenacity is an amazing organization, with great people who are committed to helping Boston students get on a pathway to success.    By providing after school, in-school and summer programs that weave together athletic activities, such as tennis, along with academic assistance of tutoring,  mentoring and literacy support, they are helping kids build strong minds and strong bodies.  That in itself is a lot, but they don’t stop there.  The Tenacity staff creates relationships with students, and their families, along with partnerships with the public schools so they are truly engaged in the students lives.  They provide positive role models for students, and help them to develop a strong and healthy sense of self to aid them in making sound decisions and deal with difficult situations.  They are truly invested in the students personal growth while providing valuable life skills and supporting them the whole way!  I have volunteered at some Tenacity events and heard from parents and past/present students about how grateful they are to this program for teaching skills that will lead them  to achieve excellence in school, career and life.  I heard kids speak about the colleges and universities that they were accepted to or graduated from, and that they may not have otherwise had that chance or known how to navigate the process.   My  friend works at Tenacity, and I have seen her interactions with the kids and  parents and how they treat her like part of the family.  It is so inspiring!    I am very proud to be a part of the Tenacity marathon team, and to support an organization that is having such a meaningful and positive impact on the community.   To learn more about tenacity please visit the website: https://tenacity.org/

Please help me to reach my goal of $10,000 to support this great cause.    

Thank you for visiting my page and for any donations!  :)
