ORGANIZER: Horizons For Homeless Children
EVENT: Boston Marathon 2014
EVENT DATE: Apr 21, 2014
Dear Family and Friends,
I work for children every day. But they all have homes. They all go home to warmth and cozy. They don't have to worry about their next meal or where they can sleep or find a bathroom.
Horizons for Homeless is an organization that takes care of children who live in shelters in Boston. Horizons provides these children with warm place to be, to play, to sleep -- to be nourished, heart, body, soul.
This winter has been cold and brutal for marathon training. Every single step I take, every time I step out in the black of a icy, windy, lonely morning, I think of those children. So many of us have so much. Please help me help provide some of those children with continued care and support while they need it most by supporting my run for homeless children.
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.

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.
Thank you for your support.
