Welcome to my 2020 Boston Marathon fundraising campaign for the MEB Foundation!
I started marathon running later in life than most, completing my first at Disney in 2009. In 2014 I ran the NYC Marathon, my fourth, it was the best day of my life! What an experience! It was then that I set my first ever personal goal; to run all the AWMM by the time I was 60 years old. I knew that Boston would be my biggest challenge, I am just not a fast runner; and while I will continue to train as consistently hard as I can, Boston seemed like a pie in the sky dream for me.
Until I got my phone call~ I have been selected to be a part of Team Meb benefitting his foundation. I am just beyond excited! What an honor! April 20th 2020 I will be running the streets of BOSTON!
My 6th Star!
For an amazing man and his foundation!
I feel so honored to have been selected to run for the Team MEB Foundation. Meb is someone I have always admired throughout my running journey. He is part of an immigrant family that have all achieved just amazing things with their lives and now they are choosing to help and educate others so that they too can realize the promise of the American Dream.
Meb Keflezighi is the only athlete in history to win the New York Marathon, the Boston Marathon, and an Olympic Medal. The foundation promotes the importance of "Maintaining Excellent Balance" in life. The mission is guided by the belief that lessons learned through sports transcend into all aspects of life. The MEB Foundation supports programs and events that inspire youth and their families to lead healthy, balanced lives. The MEB Foundation fulfills its mission as a collaborator and leader in health, education, and fitness.
I’d be honored to have your support as a part of Team MEB Boston. Thanks for considering and please share with your friends and family.
