BENEFITING: Horizons For Homeless Children
ORGANIZER: Horizons For Homeless Children
EVENT: Boston Marathon 2014
EVENT DATE: Apr 21, 2014
Over the past 13 years, the Run for Homeless Children team has raised more than $1.2 million to improve the lives of young homeless children and their families. Each year, a team of passionate and committed supporters runs the Boston Marathon to fundraise and spread the word about the crisis of child and family homelessness.
I am both honored and humbled to join this year's team. Running the Boston Marathon has been a dream of mine ever since I my high school cross country days, but I was admittedly too shy to try to get a number. After last year's tragic events I wanted to throw my energy into doing something to help my beloved Boston, and knew that running this marathon on bahalf of Horizons would be great way to do just that.

The Boston Marathon has long been a time for communities to come together to run, cheer, and support each other. Our thoughts will always be with those affected by last year's tragedy, and those who are still recovering.
