EVENT DATE: Apr 21, 2014
Katie has run five half-marathons, and this will be her first time running the full 26.2 miles. She is grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this year’s race: “The marathon will surely be an emotional and history-making event in Boston. In 2014, I'm running with the FamilyAid Boston team and couldn't be more overwhelmed by emotion and enthusiasm for it.”
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 $70,000 with your help!
