"I burst through the clouds, bits of cotton-like fluff flying every which way. This was the most amazing sensation, and I was the only one in the world allowed to experience it. " - Adam, age 14
Adam's description almost perfectly describes how I felt when I discovered 826 Boston ten years ago at the book launch of 2% of 2% of 2% of All the World's Stories, a book of bedtime stories written by third graders.
It is also a pretty good description for how it can feel during a really great run. I’m delighted to be able to combine my love of 826 Boston with my penchant for long runs. Though, the last time I ran this far (also for 826 Boston) was back in 2018 during the Boston Monsoon. ..err Marathon. Nonetheless - I'm committed to run the 2020 Boston Marathon again for this amazing cause - and I figure the weather HAS to be better.
My goal is to raise more than $10,000! Not only is it the best way I can think of to commemorate my tenth year as a supporter but more importantly those funds will help bring the magic of 826 to more students in Boston Public Schools!
Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to sharing more of what’s to love about 826 Boston in my journey to the start line!
