Hi everyone! I am SO excited to be running my first marathon for a program I care a lot about in a city that I love!!!
Summer Urban Program, the program I'm raising money for, is an organization that runs summer programs for students at 10 different Harvard after school programs. One of these programs is the Mission Hill After School Program, a program I've been involved with since last fall and where I spend two afternoons a week. Spending time with my kids, a rambunctious classroom of five- and six-year-olds we call Red Group, is one of my favorite parts of every week. Please consider donating to support getting staff and supplies for them this upcoming summer! Also to support me running many many miles in the cold bc running is scary & hard!! MUCH LOVE <3
Harvard College Marathon Challenge (HCMC) is an organized group of Harvard students, employees, and alums that raises money, through running, to benefit the health, education, and welfare of Boston-area youth and families. Your donation to HCMC will benefit the Phillips Brooks House Association (PBHA) Summer Urban Program (SUP). PBHA SUP delivers educational and enrichment programming to underserved youth throughout the Greater Boston area. Since its inception in 2005-06, HCMC runners have raised over $782,000 for causes such as PBHA SUP. Thanks for your generosity, no matter how large or how small!
My dad, Mike, is also running the Boston Marathon to support Tufts Marathon Center. Check out his page if you're feeling extra generous :) https://charity.gofundme.com/o/en/campaign/teamtuftsmc2020/michaelgoldstein6?utm_campaign=oc&utm_medium=email&utm_source=crowdrise
