BENEFITING: Horizons For Homeless Children
ORGANIZER: Horizons For Homeless Children
EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
For the past two years, Kathy, Maggie and I have been volunteering at Horizons. It's a simple and fun thing -- we play with homeless kids while their mothers attend classes, get counseling or just get a much-needed break.
It's a simple thing, but it means a lot to them -- and to us.
We've learned a lot, and become passionate about the needs of homeless kids. We are so grateful to have grown up in stable homes -- not everyone gets that chance. This is our opportunity to help those kids. They can be a handful but we love them.
So Alan, Damian, Eliana, Bella, Rosante, Julie, Eli, Joe -- this is for you!
Over the past 16 years, the Run for Homeless Children team has raised more than $1.4 million to improve the lives of young homeless children and their families. Each year, a team of passionate and committed supporters run the Boston Marathon to fundraise and spread the word about the crisis of child and family homelessness.
