EVENT: 2012 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 16, 2012
Running the 2012 Boston Marathon is truly a unique and special experience for me. Not only am I running for a great cause in the first city I called home but also in honor of one the greatest men in my life, my grandfather Charles Calvey Sr. We lost my grandfather to colon cancer in 1997. He was a proud Boston resident, community advocate and business owner for over 40 years. I am thrilled to be running my second marathon on behalf of the Expect Miracles Foundation, a leading advocate in the fight against cancer and in memory of my grandfather and all those that have lost a loved one to cancer.
