Dear friends,?

Being in the business of philanthropy and running, I was looking for the right challenge to inspire, enliven?and test my?limits as a runner and as a person, while having fun and hopefully, get?my friends and family excited too.

Having lost my wonderful father?Jim Hurley, several years ago, who was?the biggest Red Sox fan in the world,?I decided to take on the Fenway Park Marathon?challenge on September 15, 2017?to honor him and my mother, Sylvia Hurley, who is blind.

They?will be my inspiration for this race, especially my mother,?as what she goes through on a daily basis is so much more difficult than running 114?laps in a circle?for 26.2 miles.?

With this challenge comes the financial obligation to meet a fundraising goal of $5,000 for the Red Sox Foundation. The Red Sox Foundation is a 5013c charitable foundation, so all donation are tax deductible. Two?of my favorite Red Sox Foundation initiatives which this challenge will benefit?are:

KIDS!?The Red Sox Scholars Program which?is a college scholarship and enrichment program. In 2017, the Red Sox Foundation has opened the doors of opportunity to 274 academically talented, economically disadvantaged students from the Boston Public School District. Selected to the program in middle school, the Red Sox Foundation awards each Scholar a $10,000 college scholarship. It follows the success of the student beginning in middle school through high school offering encouragement and support throughout.

VETERANS! The Home Base Program treats soldiers returning from combat in Afghanistan and Iraq with traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress? the invisible wounds of war. Founded in 2009, the program has directly served more than 9,000 veterans and family members. Its clinical and community education programs have reached more than 25,000 clinicians and more than 1,800 school and community leaders.

?I have run almost all?of my life, starting in second?grade after missing the bus almost daily. I have run many races and logged many miles. I foresee this challenge to be one of my most difficult to tackle; however;?with the inspiration of my mother, my father and the support of?Barry, Ryan and?Max, ?and my wonderful?friends and colleagues, I'm confident?I will achieve it.

HOW CAN YOU HELP???SPONSOR A?LAP ( 116 laps available) Sponsor a lap and you get a K sign. The K signs you can either bring to Fenway on race evening to "throw up" a K. Or you can keep it for your own self.

I hope you will consider a donation of sponsoring?a one?lap or two?for $50 per lap in support of kids who are in need of our encouragement?in our community and our very special veterans who have served for our safety. Remember there are 116 laps.?

Each lap sponsor will recieve, their own official " K"??LAP CARD and the opportunity to attend the race, put up their lap card?and cheer the runners?on. Remember it's a Friday night!?

Thank you for your friendship and love,

Warmly,

Susan?
