Dear Vic- Thank you, thank …
Dear Vic-

Thank you, thank you, thank you for your generous donation benefiting Project Hope. Your support made an incredible day even more special. As Race Director Dave McGillivray correctly noted, the 118th Boston Marathon was epic.

It was a race filled with emotion.

Last year, I was a spectator. I was standing at Cleveland Circle waiting for Team Hoyt when then bombs went off on Boylston Street. I remember feeling incredible sadness, anger, and confusion in trying to wrap my head around how anyone could seek to harm this wonderful and unique city.

This year, I was a runner. It was my sixth Boston and ranked among the most emotional days of my life. It was an incredible honor to have stood alongside (and, more likely, behind) 36,000 other runners as we made that fabled trip from Hopkinton to Boston.

The crowds, volunteers, and support from friends like you made this year’s race one for the ages. I cannot think of any more fitting tribute to the four lives that were lost and the 250 people who were injured than the camaraderie and spirit that defined this year’s race. With every stride, we thought of those whom we lost and those that were hurt. They and their families exemplify the essence of Boston Strong. That’s what pushed us for 26.2 miles.

Because of your generosity, the Project Hope Marathon Team raised an astonishing $350,000. All of the funds raised will go to support programming and services offered by this Boston landmark. It is not hyperbolic to suggest that lives will be saved because of your donation.

I am incredibly grateful for your friendship and support. Please do not hesitate to call on me if I can ever be of any help to you in the future.

Yours,
Matt
