Running the Boston Marathon has always been a bucket list item for me. I have dreamed of crossing the finish line many times, and 2020 will finally be my year. Not only do I want to accomplish this goal, but I want to help a wonderful cause while I'm at it. I am running for the Museum of Science Traveling Program.
The Museum of Science is an institution in Boston. I grew up taking field trips there as a kid and even visiting as an adult, and it is such a special and important place. The MOS Traveling Programs’ mission is to teach exciting outreach programs that ignite curiosity in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics to underprivileged kids. Science is so important, especially in this day and age, and exposing young minds to these important enrichment programs is such a meaningful and necessary thing. How else will we save our planet?!
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 .
Last year we made 1,089 outreach visits, taught 2,127programs, served over 100,000 people, and drove 65,367 miles. Communities need science enrichment programs more than ever, and we need your help. Your support will aid in scholarships, program expansion, and of course, the vans that make this entire program possible.
