Hello Friends, Family, Fellow Runners & Donaters!
I am so excited to have you all along with me as I run my very first marathon! I wanted to not only physically push myself to accomplish a Marathon but wanted to use it as an opportunity to positively affect others! I came across Go Kids Boston and was sold! After reading into what Go Kids was all about and being a past Umass Boston undergraduate, I knew I had found the right charity for me.
GoKids Boston embodies innovation and leadership in youth health through life-changing programs, groundbreaking research, exceptional training opportunities, and dedication to the community with a focus on eliminating health disparities.
GoKids Boston, a key strategic initiative of Chancellor Keith Motley, was founded at UMass Boston in 2006 in collaboration with Children's Hospital Boston to advance the science relating exercise to youth health and wellness and to become a local leader in combating the obesity epidemic.
There is no better feeling than giving back to the youth! THEY ARE THE FUTURE! :) I want to thank you all for your love and support in these coming months! Please donate to help me reach my fundraising goal or better yet, blow right past it! and help this amazing organization.
It isn't going to be easy, the farthest distance I've run thus far is a half marathon. I'll be training through the cold cold winter so each dollar you donate will give me warm thoughts :) and keep me running! SO KEEP ME WARM!
Thank you all again! I am so thankful to be a part of this!
