THE STORY:

 Dear Family, Friends and Colleagues,

On April 15, 2013 I will run the Boston Marathon for the 11th time.  This is my third, “last time I’m doing this!”  It feels like the end of a journey, particularly because my wife Mimi has chosen to sit on the sidelines for the first time in six years.  She is now my cheerleader, a role she enjoys much better than training in below freezing temperatures, on ice and snow, in the dark cold of Boston winter.  Not easy to crawl out of bed to hit the road when she is peacefully snoozing.

My first attempt at retirement was delayed three years ago when a group of friends and I founded the Project Hope Marathon Team.  In our first two years, the dream of a few has raised nearly $300,000 to help break the cycle of poverty in Boston, and enable young families to become self-sufficient.  This year, we have thirty members – a feat we thought would never happen given the difficulty of securing numbers for this prestigious race.  I am in awe and inspired, and want to leave a legacy for what we can now call a “real” Boston Marathon team.

Project Hope helps families believe in their own possibilities and to break through the barriers that keep them poor. Our running team symbolizes the struggles of our families with their hard work, dedication and commitment to reaching the finish line.  Their journey of 26.2 miles, and all the months of training leading up to it, gives us the opportunity to raise vital funds by connecting to new sources of support.

The families of Project Hope are in the marathon of their lives.  They find inspiration in what we do by running a marathon; we find inspiration in how hard they work each and every mile of their journey.   If this is my final marathon, I want to go out kicking and screaming and finish strong by raising $15,000 to support Project Hope.  To meet this goal I need your help like never before.  Please support Project Hope by check in the enclosed envelope, or on line at http://www.crowdrise.com/TeamProjectHope2013/fundraiser/rongolub.  Anything you can do to support our mission is greatly appreciated.

I will do the running, but with your help we can change the world in which we live, starting in our own back yard.  Thanks for your support throughout the years.

Thank you for supporting our team. Your support directly impacts homeless families in Boston.

-Ron
