Hello and welcome to my fundraising page! I will be running the Boston Marathon in April with the Tufts Marathon Team! I've wanted to run Boston for many years, so I am extremely excited and grateful to have this opportunity.
Each member of the Tufts Marathon Team is required to raise funds for the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy, which will benefit critical issues in food and nutrition. If you are able, please consider donating, as it will have a huge impact on issues like childhood obesity, cancer, and healthy aging and will help me get one step closer to running Boston in the spring.
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 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.
