I have received a great gift from the Town of Hopkinton Tax Relief Committee . The Committee is allowing me to fulfill a dream to run the 2016 Boston Marathon! While I get to fulfill this dream I am also helping the town's Seniors and Disabled by raising funds for the Town of Hopkinton Tax Relief Fund.
Their committee oversees the Elderly and Disabled Tax Relief Fund which was established to help the town's low income elderly and disabled by providing financial assistance to these individuals towards the payments of their property taxes. This fund allows these individuals to afford to stay in their homes which otherwise they would not be able to with their fixed incomes.
The fund is supported solely by donations by Hopkinton residents and organizations. In recent years the funds have decreased greatly which has made it difficult to help these individuals in need. This year the town committee was assigned two charity bibs for the 2016 Boston Marathon. These 2 bibs will help the town replenish the funds to provide the help to these residents. I feel very fortunate to be one of the two runners selected to run and help this town out.
Please support my dream of running Boston Marathon by helping this town's charity by making a donation. Any donation large or small would be greatly appreciated!!
Thank you for your support and I can't wait until April 18th!!!!
