EVENT: 2016 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 18, 2016
I could not be more thrilled and honored to be running the 120th Boston Marathon for the YMCA of Greater Boston. Running the Boston Marathon has always been a life-long dream of mine and I am excited to finally make it a reality this Spring!
Having worked for the YMCA, I can personally attest to the tremendous impact they have on the lives of Boston-area teens with regard to academic support, job training, employment, and skill development.
By donating to my campaign, you are ensuring that the YMCA of Greater Boston can continue to offer these critically important tools, resources, and services to Boston area teens that will forever change their lives for the better.
Here is how your gift can impact the youth of our community:
$100 - Take a stand against violence and bullying by supporting one teen to complete the cyber bullying and safe dating programs.
$250 - Help a high school senior realize their college dream by supporting one teen through the Y’s Pathways to College Program.
$500 - Ensure teens have a safe place to go away from the violence in their community by providing 5 youth with yearlong YMCA memberships.
$1,000 - Encourage healthy living by helping 4 youth become engaged with peers and participate in a session of teen sports programs
$2,500 - Ensure Boston teens graduate on time by providing 5 teens in danger of not graduating high school the opportunity to make-up their missing credits at the Y’s Academic Credit Recovery Centers
$5,000 - Hire 5 teens for the summer giving them their first job experience learning about responsibility and the importance of team work
Thank you for believing in me and supporting this incredibly worthwhile cause!
