I'm excited to run my first Boston Marathon for the Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program (BHCHP) team. To add an extra incentive to potential donors, I will match $2 for every $1 donated for up to $5,000 to support this great cause. As its name indicated, BHCHP provides the highest quality health care to the thousands of homeless men, women, and children in the Boston area.
I've been running along the marathon route at Heartbreak Hill for 20+ years and have been watching the race with friends, neighbors and family almost every year since moving to Newton in 1991. I completed my first marathon, the Baystate in Lowell, in October. I've run dozens of shorter races from 5Ks to half marathons on the streets and the trails. I'm ready for the challenge of Boston and will do my donors proud.
