I am running the Boston Marathon on April 20, 2020 (with your help)!
My dad was a HUGE Boston Celtics fan (I got my name from the daughter of Celtics legend Dave Cowens) and he passed along his love of sports and his passion for his teams (Boston Celtics, Cleveland Browns, and LA Dodgers) to me!
So when I realized that in 2020 and 2021 Patriot’s Day (the 3rd Monday in April - the day that Boston Marathon is held) will fall AFTER income taxes being due I started looking into a charity bib. I am happy to announce that I will be joining the Boston Celtics Shamrock Foundation 2020 Boston Marathon Team - Green Runs Deep, presented by New Balance!
There will be some exciting events leading up to the Boston Marathon as my teammates and I share what inspires us to run and join together to encourage each other to reach our fundraising goals and to run 26.2 miles crossing that finish line on Boylston street!
I hope you will help me support the Boston Celtics Shamrock Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and their mission to extend the reach of the Celtics championship legacy into the Boston 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
