BENEFITING: Youth Enrichment Services, Inc.
ORGANIZER: Youth Enrichment Services, Inc.
EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
Thank you very much for visiting my fundraising page! I have the honor to run the 2015 Boston Marathon on April 20 in support of Youth Enrichment Services (YES).
YES is an incredible youth development organization that has benefited over 100,000 children in Boston during the past 44 years. YES provides children with multiple opportunities to engage in after school activities and athletics to help teach them important leadership and teamwork skills. YES’s mission is to inspire and challenge youth with physical and mental activities that foster life-long respect for self, others, and the environment.
The values that YES embodies are some of the most important life lessons that anyone can learn, and can help change children’s' lives. Running for YES at the 2015 Boston Marathon will help me support children who need it the most and provide them opportunities to learn more about leadership, perseverance and teamwork.
I am driven to the starting line of the Boston Marathon for YES because sports and running have made me who I am today. I have learned the true importance of teamwork and courage on the soccer field and in all my after school activities, and I want to share that opportunity with others. YES teaches children the value of believing in yourself and helps them drive forward with ambition to reach their goals. It is this drive that is motivating me to conquer my fears and step up to run 26.2 miles.
I am extremely appreciative for any donation possible to this amazing organization. YES allows children the opportunities that were so significant in shaping my character today, and I want to help support as many children as possible.
Thank you very much for your kind donation and support, and let me know if you want to go on a run together in the next couple of months!
