I am so excited to share that on April 20, 2020 I will be running the Boston Marathon! As you know, I've completed several marathons, but this will be my first time running Boston and it’s a bucket list race for me. I’ve chosen to run with the charity Cradles to Crayons, and need your help in fundraising $10,000!
Cradles to Crayons’ mission is to provide children between birth to 12 years old, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essentials they need to thrive - at home, at school and at play. Every year, C2C prepares tens of thousands of customized KidPacks to distribute to local kids year-round. These KidPacks are complete with age-appropraite supplies, clothing and personal items.
This charity is near and dear to me, especially during the winter season when my school goes above and beyond to provide warm coats and essentials for our students in need. As a first grade teacher, seeing my students have the support they deserve through programs like C2C makes a profound difference in the classroom.
Please consider supporting Cradles to Crayons by donating to my campaign. I mean it when I say that no donation is too small! When donating, please take a moment to see if your company matches donations. This is a very easy way to get the most out of your contribution. Also, please feel free to share this link with any of your networks who might be interested in supporting this wonderful organization. Below you can see some of the ways in which your donations can help:
