My roommates and I are currently students at Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine, working towards our Masters in Conservation Medicine. It's a one-year program based at both the vet school and the main campus in Medford. Being a part of the Tufts community, my one roommate Liana DeNino and I are fortunate enough to have earned a spot on the Tufts Marathon Team to run the Boston Marathon. When in Boston I guess, right? With Liana as a previous marathon runner, and Tara as our loving supporter, they'll hopefully encourage me to run longer distances than soccer field 120s prior to April 20th, 2020.
Any contribution to my goal of $1500 is extremely appreciated! Thank you for your support!
The Tufts Marathon Team (TMT), in collaboration with John Hancock, offers the opportunity to run the Boston Marathon while raising critical funds to benefit childhood obesity, cancer, hunger/famine, and healthy aging to name a few. Since first taking part in the Marathon in 2003, TMT has raised more than $6.7 million to support these crucial issues in food and nutrition.
Fundraising is a requirement for TMT runners. Minimums are $1,500 for students and $7,500 for staff, alumni, parents, and friends. The Friedman School is honored to have 50 runners fundraising for some of the most pressing issues in the world today. All runners focus their fundraising on one or more of the following crucial issues in food and nutrition, helping to make a real difference in the United States and the world.
TMT is the largest known collegiate marathon program in the United States, attracting runners from around the country. A lottery system is used to determine the students, staff, alumni, parents, and friends representing the TMT on Patriots Day. To receive more information regarding joining the Tufts Marathon Team please contact Coach Don Megerle at email@example.com.
Your gift will benefit the Tufts nutrition community and will help to ensure the future of this campaign at the Friedman School while demonstrating your support and encouragement of the runners.
