I am so excited to share that I will be running the Boston Marathon this year!! I am still trying to process this fact. This will be my 1st Boston and 6th marathon. I remember my father marathon training when I was a teen and I was pretty sure running a marathon was the dumbest idea I had ever heard. Fast forward to today and I cannot contain my excitement knowing I'll be celebrating my 42nd birthday running the BOSTON Marathon. When I started running a few years ago, it nothing more than a way to manage my stress. I needed a way to just escape it all. Little did I know how much running would change me. I've made new friends, discovered a passion for a sport I never would have expected and I've grown and learned so much about myself out there running for hours and hours. There are so many great charities out there and the Museum of Science is one of them. Please consider making a donation $25 provides a dozen wine glasses to smash using resonance & a speaker in a Now Hear This: The Sounds of Science School Program $50 provides a tank of gas for the small vans which will allow traveling programs to drive over 350 miles to schools and libraries. $100 provides the raw materials for 16 classes (about 4 schools) to design, create, and test wind turbine blades in an engineering: Wind Energy Program.
In 2010, the Boston Athletic Association awarded community partner bibs to the Museum of Science for the Boston Marathon®. All funds raised by the runners would support the Traveling Programs. Traveling Programs’ mission is to teach exciting outreach programs that ignite curiosity in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (S.T.E.M).
These types of programs benefit our communities by providing additional education opportunities to our youth bringing programs to schools, libraries, boys and girls clubs etc.
No donation is too small to make a difference.
