Welcome to my fundraising page! I am extremely excited to be running the Boston Marathon in April 2020!
Majoring in occupational therapy has allowed me to reflect on my own occupations that I identify as meaningful. Running has become integral to my daily life and I have experienced benefits to both my mental and physical health as a result.
After two years of living in Boston, I will be returning back to Los Angeles in May. I am incredibly grateful for the lifelong friends, education, and experiences that Boston has provided me and I view this run as my goodbye and thank you to Boston.
This run also holds meaning because 30 years ago my mom ran the LA marathon and qualified for the Boston Marathon but was unable to attend. While it was always her dream to run the Boston Marathon, I am running this race for her. I dedicate this run to her, my family, and my friends that have always supported me!
Thank you for all the continuous 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.
