ORGANIZER: FRIENDS OF THE PUBLIC GARDEN
EVENT: Boston Marathon 2014
EVENT DATE: Apr 21, 2014
I am so excited to be running in the Boston Marathon this year- especially for an organization that means as much to me as the Friends does! I have loved the Public Garden, the Common and the Mall ever since I arrived in Boston in 2004 as a freshman at Boston University. I was constantly convincing my friends to get off campus and explore the city and on sunny days it was always easier when one of these three areas was our destination.
After moving back to Boston in 2010 I would walk through the Common before and after every job interview downtown. A perfect place to reflect on the conversations had and evaluate potential opportunities, I found myself appreciating it in new ways.
Now, as I have been working with the Friends of the Public Garden I love learning about their dedication to maintain and preserve the wonderful retreats within the city. Knowing how much goes into keeping these areas in the healthy and pristine condition makes me proud to know that I am contributing to that- and I would like nothing more than for you to help me in my fundraising efforts to make a lasting impact on our parks.
