EVENT: Boston Marathon 2014
EVENT DATE: Apr 21, 2014
My wife and I took on the sport of running 10 years ago and have accomplished many goals including running the 2010 Boston Marathon together while getting engaged on course.We have each run 37 marathons. We run to keep fit and focused and it is a nice way to tour this great country. Running for Family Aid Boston was a simple choice: everyone deserves the pride and privilege of calling someplace home.
About FamilyAid Boston:
FamilyAid Boston works with families at all stages of the journey from homelessness to housing by providing homelessness prevention assistance, emergency shelter and permanent, affordable housing in conjunction with support services. Along the way, we work with families to identify and address the problems that led to their current crisis. Our goal is for the families who we serve to remain housed, stable, and able to provide for themselves long after they leave our care.
For the last three years, FamilyAid Boston has partnered with the John Hancock Non-Profit Marathon Program to raise $107,280 to help homeless families.
Last year's marathon team raised a record $50,000 to help homeless families. This year, we hope to exceed $55,000 with your help!
