EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
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
