Thank you for visting my Crowdrise page for Shrewsbury Youth and Family Services (SYFS). SYFS is a non-profit human services agency, dedicated to providing counseling and supportive services to low income families in the town of Shrewsbury, MA. Remarkably, this agency never denies services to clients based on their ability to pay, and assists an average of 700 client-families each year. SYFS is able to stay true to its mission of supporting youth and families in need regardless of their ability to pay largely through donations. On April 16th, I will join 30,000 runners in an incredible journey from Hopkinton to Boston, in what will be my third Boston Marathon. I am honored to be running this race for an organization whose mission so embodies the spirit of the Boston Marathon, and resonates deeply with me as a special educator. Thank you for your support of my campaign, and you will all be in my thoughts come Marathon Monday.
