EVENT: 2013 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 15, 2013
With less than 1 month until my 4th Boston Marathon, Carolyn and I are just $4567 from raising an incredible $20,000 for Metropolitan Boston Housing Partnership! During that time, I have run nearly 400 miles and spent 3-5 hours per week on an indoor bike trainer - all to prepare for our 26.2 jaunt through Greater Boston on April 15th.
Why on earth would 2 parents of small children with full-time jobs take on a challenge like this? For us, the decision was easy - my clients and the clients of my co-workers at MBHP need the resourses and case management that your donations help make possible.
2013 marks the 10th anniversary of my employment at MBHP ($10,000 for 10 years!). During this time, I have worked in multiple roles and had the opportunity to see hundreds of individuals and families impacted by our work. Without MBHP and your support of our Client Services department, these folks would be facing eviction, life on the street and numerous other challenges.
Please take a moment and help us push past the $20,000 fundraising mark by April 15th. Your donation of $25, $50, $100, $500,$1000+ will help us to ensure that our clients have the support and resources to ensure they have a place to call home.
Join us on April 9th from 5:00pm-11:30pm at Flatbread (45 Day St, Somerville MA) for a pizza and beer benefit for Team MBHP. Thanks to the generosity of Flatbread Company and Backlash Beer, a portion of sales will benefit our fundraising effort. In addition, we have some fantastic raffle prizes in store!
