Since moving to Boston last August, my passion for running has allowed me to develop a deeper sense of community, whether relayed as a certain unspoken motivation from a well-matched training partner or intrinsic to a wave from a passing runner along the Charles.
I am thrilled to share that I’ll be running to support the Boston Public Library (BPL) in the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2019. As a member of the BPL Marathon Team, I will be training and fundraising towards the enhancement and enrichment of after-school programs at BPL. I look forward to these next few months as I combine my passions for running, education, and community engagement.
I hope to raise at least $7,500 for the Boston Public Library. If you are able to help out in any way, all donations will be dedicated to the library’s after-school programs, helping to ensure that there are accessible and engaging educational opportunities for all children in the Boston community. Thanks so much for your support and contributions. I will be sure to keep you updated throughout my training!

Boston Public Library has a Central Library, twenty-five branches, map center, business library, and a website filled with digital content and services. Established in 1848, the Boston Public Library has pioneered public library service in America. It was the first large free municipal library in the United States, the first public library to lend books, the first to have a branch library, and the first to have a children’s room. Each year, the Boston Public Library hosts thousands of programs and serves millions of people. All of its programs and exhibitions are free and open to the public. At the Boston Public Library, books are just the beginning. To learn more, visit bpl.org.
