As many of you know by now, I'm excited and honored to be running the 2020 Boston Marathon with Team Brookline. This charity means a tremendous amount to me, as I'm raising money to better my local community.
Specifically, I'm running for the Brookline Library Foundation. The library, to me, is one of the most valuable resources a community can have. Beyond the books, a public library offers everything from classes to learn new skills to even checking out pots and pans! A library is a safe space, where the only thing limiting you is your imagination.
A library card is one of the most important things you can carry with you. It gives you access to so much more than just books. Please join me as I raise money to better our libraries, and in turn, better our community.
Team Brookline, the Town of Brookline’s official Boston Marathon team, is a committed group of adult runners who train together for the Boston Marathon while raising funds for five partner charities that play an integral role in strengthening and enriching our community: The Brookline Center for Community Mental Health, Brookline Education Foundation, Brookline Library Foundation, Brookline Symphony Orchestra, and Brookline Teen Center.
In 2019, Team Brookline was in the top 25 of all Boston Marathon charity teams.
Since its inception in 2012, more than 155 runners, supported by friends, family, neighbors, colleagues, and each other, as well as local businesses, have raised $1.675 million to strengthen our community and make a true impact in the lives of all who live, work, or go to school in Brookline. When you train and run with Team Brookline, you strengthen our community, expanding access to mental health care, literacy, the arts, youth development programs, and education.
