Hi all! I am participating in my 9th Icycle this year and leading Team IR+M with a 7am kickoff.
I am setting a personal fundraising goal of $2060…why the odd number you may ask? Well, it’s because for $2060, two families of 4 --- 8 people will removed from the streets and provided with shelter. Will you please help me reach my goal?
Why does this cause and organization mean so much to me? I’ve lived in New England all my life and know how hard the harsh winters can be. I don’t even like commuting in the cold let alone sleeping in it. Also, HomeStart is targeting Boston’s homeless population and is working with Mayor Walsh to end Veterans Homelessness in Boston by 2018. This holds a special place in my heart. After serving our country, this is the least we can do for our Veterans. I feel so strongly about HomeStart’s cause that I am volunteering and became a member of their Board of Director’s in the fall of 2015. I see first-hand how the organization works to fulfill its mission to end and prevent homelessness in Boston. Their work is outstanding.
Last year Team IR+M’s ICyclers raised $40,000 for HomeStart and I am asking for your help to get us that much closer to our goal. ANY donation is appreciated!
Thanks so much in advance!
