BENEFITING: Boston Cares, Inc.
ORGANIZER: Boston Cares, Inc.
EVENT: 2016 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 18, 2016
After wrapping up my distance swimming career at the end of college, I began to develop a love of distance running. I ran a few half-marathons and quickly got an itch to do a marathon. Watching the Boston community support friends and total strangers along the marathon route year after year brings me to tears (happy crying of course) and made me dream of running Boston one day. I'm so pleased to announce that I'll be running my first marathon on April 18th in support of Boston Cares. I can't wait to achieve my dream of running the Boston Marathon and help give back to the city that I've called home for the past 7 years.
For those who don't know, Boston Cares trains volunteers across the region to work on projects for local schools and nonprofits. Projects include anything from building beds for children in need to serving meals at soup kitchens to tutoring adults studying for their GED. Boston Cares coordinates over 200 projects a month and mobilizes more than 25,000 volunteers a year through their individual and corporate volunteer programs.
Any donation you can provide would be greatly appreciated! Your support would be invaluable to Boston Cares and help them continue to serve those in need. To learn more about this great organization, visit bostoncares.org
