Dear Family and Friends,

Happy summer! A couple of weeks ago, the Boston Red Sox Foundation announced an opportunity that I couldn't pass up, a chance to raise money for the Red Sox Scholars. As a former teacher, principal and central office leader in Boston Public Schools, I have seen the impact of the Red Sox Scholars on BPS students. Red Sox Scholars provides mentoring, connections to after-school programs, enrichment activities and college scholarships to talented but economically disadvantaged Boston Public School students. My goal is to raise $5,000 for this fantastic program by running the first marathon inside a professional sports stadium, Fenway Park. On Friday, September 15th at 5pm, I will run 112 laps around the field of Fenway with 49 other runners. Please consider donating to the Red Sox Scholars and / or coming by Fenway to check this unique race. Thanks for your support.
