Welcome to my 2020 Boston Marathon campaign for the MEB Foundation! I chose to run the 2020 Boston Marathon as a member of Team MEB because the mission of the MEB Foundation aligns strongly with my own personal journey as an athlete. I have competed in sports my entire life and remember struggling to find the balance between school, friends, family, faith, and hobbies. Having balance in your life is extremely important in living a healthy life both mentally, emotionally, and physically. Everyone should know that with support, balance, hard-work, and dedication, one can achieve anything they put their mind to.
In my final year at Boston College, there is no better way I want to celebrate my time in Boston coming to a close. I am so excited to represent the MEB Foundation and share my journey with you!
The MEB Foundation is guided by the importance of “Maintaining Excellent Balance” in life. Founder Meb Keflezighi, believes that balance contributes greatly to his success as a marathon champion, family man, and community leader. The MEB foundation seeks to empower youth and their families to “Maintain Excellent Balance” in the areas of youth health, education, and fitness. To do so, the MEB Foundation supports programs and events that: empower youth and their families to “Maintain Excellent Balance”, provide the tools and resources to lead healthy lifestyles, engage children in academics, in and out of school hours, provide opportunities for children to play and learn positive life skills through involvement in sports, and engage entire communities in promoting youth health, education and fitness.
