Hi Friends and Family!
For years, it has been a goal of mine to run a marathon and this year I get to check it off my bucket list!! I first started thinking about running the Boston Marathon when I volunteered at the medical tent and had the opportunity to meet inspiring people as they crossed the finish line in Copley Square. As these runners shared their tales about their trek from Hopkinton to Boston, I knew that one day I would travel that same path and become a Marathoner. This year, I am honored to be running for the Tufts University Marathon Team. As an Athletic Trainer at Tufts for the past 6 years, I have seen the amazing research and programs that these fundraising efforts are used for; including research on childhood obesity at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science. The money raised by the Tufts Marathon Team will provide nutrition, medical, and fitness programs to the community.
My fundraising goal for the Boston Marathon is $5,000 and I would greatly appreciate any donation amount. It will be a challenge for me to not only run a marathon but also reach my fundraising goal…but who doesn't love a challenge!!!!!!!
