EVENT DATE: Apr 21, 2014
BOSTON 2014!! It's been four years since I ran the Boston Marathon. I didn't think I would run again then I had the chance to be part of Next Step's first ever Boston Marathon team.
Next Step is a small charity that supports young people who have life-threatening illnesses. Every penny I raise will go to helping these youth who must balance growing up with managing their health issues. It is an amazing opportunity to make a significant difference in their lives.
On April 21, 2014, our four-person team will run to raise funds for young people living with life-threatening illness. Next Step helps youth battling HIV, sickle cell disease, various childhood-onset cancers, and rare genetic diseases transition into adulthood. Each Next Step marathon runner hopes to raise $10,000. Your donation will help these youth connect with peers who face similar challenges and it will help them develop effective life skills that are needed during their complicated transition to adulthood. No gift is too small.
Thank you for your help!
