Welcome to my Tufts Marathon Team 2020 fundraising page!
Since moving to Boston, it has been a dream of mine to run the Boston Marathon while attending Dental School at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. Thanks to TMT, I'm lucky enough to turn that dream into a reality on April 20, 2020, before graduating in May.
For the past two years, I have participated in the Tough Ruck, a group of military and civilians whose sole purpose is to Ruck in honor and in memory of our Fallen Service Members, Police, Firefighters and EMTs, while raising funds to support military families in times of need. We walk a 26.2 mile course with our Rucks and carry the names of our Fallen comrades with us. Through the constant support of my friends and family, I was able to complete two Tough Rucks and now will be able to run in my first Boston Marathon!
I am beyond thankful to all those who support my campaigns (both Tough Rucks and now the Boston Marathon). I would not be able to do this without you all!
Please consider donating to my fundraiser and help me raise $1500 or more to support the Friedman School of Nutrition at Tufts University and their task of tackling various food and nutrition centered issues including childhood obesity, cancer, hunger/famine, healthy aging, policy, and leadership.
Thank you all for your constant support and motivation along this journey!
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.
