BENEFITING: ANIMAL RESCUE LEAGUE OF BOSTON
ORGANIZER: ANIMAL RESCUE LEAGUE OF BOSTON
EVENT: Boston Marathon 2014
EVENT DATE: Apr 21, 2014
Hello friends, family, acquaintances & dog lovers!
I am running the 2014 Boston Marathon for the
Animal Rescue League of Boston.
I hung up my racing flats a few years ago after 20 plus years
of competing in road races, duathlons & triathlons.
Yet when I received word that the ARL was taking applications for Boston,
without a moment’s hesitation, I filled out the application.
So, 22 years after I ran my first Boston Marathon, I will line up again in
Hopkinton to participate in what will certainly be the
most poignant Boston Marathon to date.
One of the reasons I decided to give up competing was because I wanted to devote more time to my own four dogs and to my volunteer work for my local shelter in Nantucket,
Nantucket Safe Harbor for Animals.
To be able to raise funds for the ARL of Boston which addresses many issues and concerns that affect all shelter efforts in MA & across the nation feels like a natural progression
in terms of my own desire to help improve the lives of animals.
Please consider sponsoring my run! I will be so very grateful and humbled.
More importantly, your donations will help the ARL of Boston continue
to provide their support and services.
