Boston Marathon 2008

HELLOOOOOO Friends and Family!!!

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!

As you have probably already gathered, On Monday, April 21st, 2008, I will be running the Boston Marathon on behalf of Good Sports, a non-profit organization that provides much needed sports and fitness equipment to disadvantaged youth in Massachusetts and Rhode Island.  Please check out their website for more info!

I have made the commitment to run 26.2 miles and raise at least $5,000 for Good Sports because as an athlete myself, I understand the importance of sports and fitness in the lives of young people.  In order to achieve my goal, I need your support.

All of you have supported me in my varied sporting endeavors over the years!  You have tolerated my near constant "Eau d'Chlorine" Perfume during my years swimming; you dutifully listened to my  stories from rowing camp; some of you even made it out for my two GLORIOUS performances on St. Mary's Lacrosse Team.  Now, I ask that you will continue your boundless support by opening your hearts (and wallets!!) to help me achieve my most challenging goal to date! 

I am EXTREMELY excited to be running for Good Sports!  Of all the charity organizations participating in the Boston Marathon, Good Sports was the only organization I was really passionate about.  One of the things that impressed me most was that for every $1 you donate to good sports, they are able to provide $2 worth of sporting equipment to kids in need!!  By helping me achieve my goal of raising $5000, you will help provide $10,000 worth of sporting equipment!!!  If that's not reason enough, I don't know what is!

Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.

Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!

Please don't hesitate to give me a yell if you have any questions. 

Thank you again for visiting, supporting, and of course, DONATING! 

See you at the finish line!
