Hello Friends and Family!
I am ecstatic to announce that I have been given the opportunity to join thousands of elite runners in the 120th Boston Marathon this April 18, 2016. I will be following in the footsteps of greats, most notably my sister Kara Sullivan (Boston Finisher 2014)and my father Tom Sullivan (20 time Boston Finisher). I will be running in support of an amazing charity, CYCLE KIDS which is a non-profit organization out of Boston, founded by a female cyclist, which aims to promote health and exercise for underserved children by creating cycling programs for kids in urban schools.
The mission of CYCLE KIDS is to strengthen the emotional and physical health of kids by inspiring them to lead active and nutritious lifestyles, using the fun and practical skill of riding a bike. It is a successful school program that impacts thousands of children each year; helping them improve academic studies, social development, and self confidence, all while tackling the overweight and obese conditions children are facing by learning how to live healthy lifestyles. As a mother of 2, a physician assistant, and a cyclist; this charity incorporates many principles which are near to my heart including: promotion of healthy lifestyle; caring for children and preparing for their future-- and what's coolest, it does so with a bike!
I would greatly appreciate any donation toward my Marathon in support of this excellent organization. Thank you so much for your support!!!!
