EVENT: 2016 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 18, 2016
A 22 year old senior at Boston University, this spring I will be running in my first ever marathon, the 120th Boston Marathon, with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Massachusetts Bay. Born and raised just outside of the city, running in the Boston Marathon has been a dream of mine since I watched my first one on TV as a kid. To have the opportunity to run alongside a nonprofit organization with initiatives that have a remarkable impact on the upcoming generation is a privilege and honor. My capacity of working with BBBSMB is through volunteering with my fraternity, Sigma Phi Epsilon. Joining their marathon team is the next step forward in my relationship with and support for the organization. This opportunity is an extraordinary chance to make an impact on many people's lives, and I would greatly appreciate your support in this cause. Donate today and lets run together as one!
