THE STORY:

I am so excited to be bringing together two of my passions - running and kids!   The charity I am running for, ABC Wellesley, is an amazing program that gives young women from low income families an education at Wellesley - something they otherwise wouldn't have.   I am a Wellesley teacher and have had amazing experiences teaching some really talented ABC students.   These kids care so much and want to learn and have wonderful goals for their future, but they need a helping hand from those of us who have been more fortunate to make that happen.  Without our help they simply won't get there.  

Training won't be easy this winter in the cold, but I want to raise funds for this wonderful program.   Your financial support for these amazing girls will be all the motivation I need!    

This will be my fourth marathon but, my first since becoming a mom.   My two boys Nico and Declan, who come along on training runs in the double stroller, are my No. 1 fans.   So thank you to Jesse,  my family and everyone who has and will continue to support me along this long road to the starting line on April 18th!   I appreciate your support, love and enthusiasm!

With Deepest Gratitude, 

Jenny Despo
