THE STORY:

This will be my seventh Boston marathon, and the third time I have the privilege of running for the Tufts Marathon Team. Each year brings new challenges, rewards, and experiences. I love running for the TMT because it offers me a great way to support the University that has given me so much. Over the past three years I have had to opportunity to raise thousands of dollars in support of medical, health, and wellness programs and research at Tufts. Last year, the TMT raised over $400,000 and to date has raised over $4.5 million since its inception in 2003.

I hope that you can support me by donating to this very worthy cause. Running a marathon is never easy - it takes a lot of training, determination, and a whole team. Similarly, research into today's health problems - like childhood obesity, a program supported by the TMT's fundraising - requires teams of researchers who have dedicated years to finding solutions. I have spoken with some of the scientists and doctors supported by the TMT and they are grateful for your generosity. Any donation, large or small, is great appreciated; you can help me reach my goal of $5,000 and bring us one step closer to making important breakthroughs!

You can support me in the 2015 Boston Marathon by making a gift online. If you prefer, you can mail in the pledge form to pay by check or credit card offline.

If you have any questions about the Tufts Marathon Team, please contact Coach Don Megerle at donald.megerle@tufts.edu.
