Welcome to my Tufts Marathon Team 2020 fundraising page! Thanks to TMT, I'm so thrilled to turn a dream into reality this April by running the Boston Marathon before graduating from Tufts in May. My life as a runner began two years ago when I wanted to create more structure in my life and get into better shape. Running has been a source of health, happiness, and mental stability for me and I truly couldn't do it without the support of those around me. I ran my first half marathon this fall in Cambridge, and this will be my first marathon! Please consider donating to my fundraiser, which serves to support the campaign set forth by the Friedman School of Nutrition at Tufts to tackle various food and nutrition centered issues including childhood obesity, cancer, hunger/famine, healthy aging, policy, and leadership. Thank you all for the support! - Cris ________________________________________________________________________
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
