As most of you know, I love to run and I love the Celtics. I am a lifelong Celtics fan and have been lucky enough to share many memorable nights in the Garden over the years supporting the team with my family. In the last 6 years I've also run 8 half marathons and 3 full marathons, but have never run Boston...until now!
I am honored this year to combine my love of running and my love of the Celtics to give back to the Boston community by running the 2020 Boston Marathon to support the Boston Celtics Shamrock Foundation.
The mission of the Boston Celtics Shamrock Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is to extend the reach of the Boston Celtics championship legacy into our community through programs that directly benefit children in need. To do this, the Foundation applies a team mentality much like that of the 17-time world champion Celtics - and relies on key partnerships with New England-based non-profit organizations who provide vital services to youth and to whom we offer funding and resources to help increase our collective impact in the community. This year our partners are:
Berklee City Music
Network Boys and Girls Clubs of Boston
Boston Children's Hospital Horizons for Homeless Children
Perkins School for the Blind Boch Center
Positive Coaching Alliance
Any and all support is much appreciated - thank you in advance for your generosity and I hope to see you out there on the course in April!
