I am excited to be running my fourth Boston Marathon, and proud to run this time for the nonprofit World of Wellesley, for my students, and for my community.
The World of Wellesley is dedicated to making our town a welcoming place for everyone. From community reads, to hosting films, lectures, and discussions on race and diversity, to sponsoring multicultural celebrations and a fifth-grade writing contest, WOW's efforts reach into every part of our increasingly diverse community.
I'm fortunate to be in my 20th year teaching in the Wellesley public schools and to have made this town my home for 23 years. It's a bonus to live near the marathon route. When I'm not running, I love to cheer on those who work so hard to tackle this challenging race — and do it to benefit important causes.
It feels great to be supporting an organization that benefits my students, their families, my colleagues, and my neighbors. WOW works to create a community that welcomes and includes everyone.
That's a goal everyone can get behind!
Please support me as I train and work to reach this fundraising goal.
Looking forward to my best race ever!
