BENEFITING: Horizons For Homeless Children
ORGANIZER: Horizons For Homeless Children
EVENT: Boston Marathon 2014
EVENT DATE: Apr 21, 2014
Horizons for Homeless Children provides a fun, safe, happy and educational environment and gives families a second chance. It is one of the most incredible causes I've had the pleasure to be a part of and means a great deal to our family. The work that Horizons does for children and their families truly helps to change lives and gives kids and their parents the support that they need. I've been part of Horizons for the last 4 years. HHC trains volunteers to become Playspace Activity Leaders—or PALs—who spend time each week playing with young homeless children in family shelters. I've had the pleasure of being a PAL and getting to know this amazing organization.
Today, family homelessness accounts for 41% of the nation are homeless. Every homeless child should have the opportunity to learn, play, and thrive. Our fundraising efforts will help against the battle of child homelessness.
The Boston Marathon has always been a time for communities to come together to run, cheer, and support each other. I've dedicated my run this year to support Horizons and our thoughts will always be with those affected by last year's tragedy.
Thank you for all your support and taking the time to give back!
