Thank you for coming to my fundraising page for the 2020 Boston Marathon!!!
It is my honor to say I will be running for the Boston Athletic Association-- I have dreamed of running this Marathon for 26 years and thanks to the B.A.A. this dream is finally a reality. Almost every year of my life I would go down to Copley Square and I would watch the Boston Marathon, hoping that one day I would be part of this world event. I love this race and I love this city more than anything in the world, my heart is bursting with pride just to be a part of this! I attended Boston University ( Go Terriers!) and during that time my favorite routes were always through Fenway Park and the Emerald Necklace Loop. Running has literally transformed my life and I hope to bring this joy, independence, confidence and healthy well-being to everyone. No matter who you are, what shape you're in, how fast you run -- YOU ARE A RUNNER! The B.A.A. is the first running organization I every participated in ( B.A.A. annual 10K), the first organization to ever consider me a "runner" and I am forever grateful.
I want to thank the B.A.A. and my donors for this amazing opportunity, it is a privlege to be chosen and I look forward to representing my community-- I promise to run for you Boston-- we are Boston Strong!
If you choose to donate please remember that most companies offer a Donation match and this would DOUBLE your impact on our community!
