Thank you for visiting my fundraising page! I am so excited to be running the 2017 Boston Marathon on April 17, 2017 and raising money for the Brookline Education Foundation (http://brooklineeducation.org). As someone who has spent their career in education (and who is married to someone who is doing the same), it is safe to say that there is nothing I find more important than supporting the education of todays students.
Nelson Mandela once said "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."
Many of you have favorite teachers who you look back on fondly, or remember having a significant impact on your life. With two daughters currently enrolled in Devo, I see the amazing work that Brookline teachers do on a daily basis! In an ever-changing world, we have seen first hand the importance of teachers and schools having enough resources to do their jobs most effectively. The grants and training provided to Brookline teachers through the Brookline Education Foundation are part of why Brookline is a truly amazing school system. And, the money raised by the five runners fundraising for the Brookline Education Foundation creates 10-12% of their budget! Your donation is crucial to supporting Brookline teachers!
Please join me in providing our teachers the opportunity to continue to grow the knowledge they pass on to our children. Your gift will have an impact on the rest of their lives.
Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It's also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts. All dontations are tax deductible and you will receive a receipt with the appropriate documentation.
Many thanks for your support -- and please forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
