Hello friends and family!
Last year I completed my 6th marathon. While almost all of my training took place on the Boston Marathon route, until now, I have never officially run it.
It has always been my goal to run the Boston Marathon and I am very excited to now have the chance to run it this April. I am especially happy to be able to run to raise money for a great local tutoring organization, Kids Connect!
Our family has lived in the town of Natick for over 10 years, and I work at MathWorks, which is also in Natick. The Boston Marathon passes right through Natick, covering miles 9 -12. Natick is a great community and Kids Connect is an organization that represents the Natick spirit of helping others. I’m hoping that you will consider supporting my run with a donation to Kids Connect.
Why Kids Connect?
Kids Connect, Inc. is a non-profit tutoring program that provides individualized educational support to the youth of the Natick community. This service is provided regardless of ability to pay and your support ensures that no struggling student is turned away. The highly qualified tutors work with a variety of learning challenges and have done so, successfully, for over 15 years. I really think the organization is a model for other communities because it:
- enhances the educational skills of the youth in creative ways
- collaborates with the schools and other groups and agencies
- nurtures an atmosphere of creativity and acceptance
I am honored to be part of such an inspiring community and glad to be able to help Kids Connect and Natick's next generation grow. The company I work for has a great matching program so no donation is too small! Thank you for reading this and for your support.
