THE STORY:

Excited can't even begin to describe my feelings on being selected as a member of the Tufts University Marathon Team (TMT)! Running the Boston Marathon has been a bucket list item for me since 2008, and I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to realize it on April 17, 2017. I'm looking forward to training with Tufts students, alumni, and my fellow colleagues.

The TMT is dedicated to raising funds in support of nutrition, fitness programs, and research at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy. I have committed to raising $5,000 because

  • The research at Friedman School will benefit people all over the world
  • My own health issues are kept in check by my nutritional choices
  • Knowing that the funds I raise will have an impact on society makes me feel good 

Will you join me in making a difference in people's lives by supporting Tufts' mission? Just click on the green "Donate" button to make your tax-deductible gift. You can also make gifts offline by printing and filling out this pledge form and mailing it in with your check or credit card info.

Thank you very much for your support! I can't wait to share my journey to 26.2 with you.

 

Warmest Regards,

Robin
