EVENT: Boston Marathon 2014
EVENT DATE: Apr 21, 2014
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page! I am thrilled to announce that I am running my very first marathon as a part of the Tufts Marathon Team (TMT)!
While it's true that in the past I have vowed that I would never do such a thing, several half-marathons and 10-mile races, combined with the encouragement of my friends and family (especially my sister Julia) have convinced me that I can and will run a marathon. As a Boston-area native who has grown up watching the marathon and enjoying the glory of Massachusetts on Patriots Day, I am particularly excited to make this my first marathon!
As a graduate student at The Fletcher School at Tufts University, I will be running the race with the Tufts Marathon Team (TMT). As part of TMT, I will join 100 runners from Tufts in training and running the race. The TMT runs to support nutrition, medical, and fitness programs at Tufts University and support research on childhood obesity at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy. The TMT has had tremendous success, and has raised over $4 million dollars since its inception in 2003!
I hope you will consider supporting me in running the marathon by helping me reach my fundraising goal of $1,500. Regardless of size, any donation will help me move closer to a successful marathon! You can donate online, or if you prefer, you can mail in the pledge form to pay by check or credit card offline.
If you have any questions about my marathon experience or the Tufts Marathon Team, don't hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
