EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
Hi everyone! I am thrilled to be part of the YES 2017 Boston Marathon team! As a lot of you know I believe strongly in mentoring youth in our communities through outdoor education. Through its flagship program, YES enables many children to experience the outdoors and gain all the benefits of spending a day outside. Many of these children live in communities where an outdoor education would not be possible without programs like YES. I feel very strongly that educating our youth is both beneficial to their personal development and critical to the further preservation of our earth. My goal is to reach $10,000 by May 31st to support their fantastic programs, even a small donation will help me get there. Thanks in advance for both your donation and reading this whole paragraph.

Team YES is running the 2017 Boston Marathon to raise funds to support YES's mission.
YES's 2016 Boston Marathon team raised over $40,000 with a team of four runners. We look forward to raising even more money for Boston youth with four new team members running for Team YES in 2017. All funds raised will be used to fund and expand after-school and outdoor programs for the Boston youth who need it most.
