EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
This year I am fortunate enough to be running in my first Boston Marathon with the Tufts Marathon Team. I will be running to support medical, health and wellness programs at Tufts University and its surrounding communities in Medford, Somerville and Boston. Funds raised also help support several nutritional research studies at the University including obesity and world famine research at the Friedman School of Nutrition. As a former Tufts athlete, I grew to understand the overall impact that nutrition and fitness play in a child's or young adult's life and am happy to support a cause that helped shape me into a happier and healthier person over my four years at the university.
Furthermore, I run in honor of those hurt or killed in the 2013 bombings as well as my friends who were at the finish line that year, to celebrate the spirit of this amazing city, and to prove that we are indeed Boston stronger (and show a little bit of Jumbo pride).
Any amount, no matter how small, will be greatly appreciated in supporting this run. I will also happily accept donations in the form of cheering, on-course Gu stations, and support runners. I cannot wait to show my support for my school and BOSTON on April 20th and hope to see you all there.
Please support our runners for the 2015 marathon by making a gift online. If you prefer, you can mail in the pledge form to pay by check or credit card offline.
