FIrst of all, thanks in advance for not automatically deleting the e-mail I sent you or ignoring the update I posted. So far, that makes you a good friend.
Second of all, thanks in advance for reading this entire message. So far, that makes you a super friend.
Third of all, thanks in advance for your generosity. That straight-up makes you an extraordinary human being.
If you're connected to any sort of social media (I'm even going to post this on Friendster and MySpace -- in case any of you find yourself in 2003), this is all going to be a giant repeat for you, but please bear with me. I'm running the Boston Marathon again, and I'm running for a cause, something that truly adds to the whole marathon experience.
A few years ago I ran the marathon for a charity and the experience was inspirational. In the months leading up to the race, as well as during the event itself, I was so touched with how much my friends and family were willing to support a local charity... to support local children. This year, I'm back again to support our local children, but this time for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston. Specifically, our donations will help support the Myra H. Kraft Giving Back Scholarship Fund. This scholarship provides financial support for college for students who have been outstanding members of Boston's BGCs... who have given their time and talents to the community and understand the importance of helping others.
BGCB's mission is to help young people, especially those who need us most, build strong character and realize their full potential as responsible citizens and leaders. By supporting the Myra H. Kraft Giving Back Scholarship Fund you will help extend the mission of Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston to further impact the lives of the individuals we serve.
Our donations will help me reach my goal of $2,500. If you’d like to join me in supporting this cause, please click the “Donate” button to the right, and reinforce that you're an extraordinary human being.
I sincerely thank you in advance for your support for a fantastic organization such as Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston. I hope to see you on the marathon route sidewalks in April.
