In 2012, I experienced my first Boston Marathon. I had just moved to the city after spending most of my life in my homestate of Montana, so I was clueless to the amazing connection this very special race has to the the city of Boston. In 2013, I was en route to the finish line as a spectator when the tragic events of that year's race took place. As scary as those couple weeks were, when it was all over, I felt inspired and vowed to run the Boston Marathon someday to honor everybody that was injured or lost in 2013.

Finally in 2017, I am going to make that happen.

Thanks to the Red Sox Foundation, I have the opportunity not only to accomplish my dream of running the Boston Marathon, but also to give back to the community by being a part of a massive fundraising effort to benefit youth health and recreation throughout New England.

Please take some time to read the story of the Red Sox Foundation below. Between programs for at-risk youth, scholarships to hard working students and recreational development in the places that need it most,the Red Sox Foundation strives to make positive change throughout New England.

Thank you so much for your consideration to donate not just to my Boston Marathon efforts, but to an organization that works tirelessly to give back to Boston and beyond.

Wish me luck! :)

ABOUT THE RED SOX FOUNDATION

As the official team charity of the Boston Red Sox, the Red Sox Foundation is committed to using the passion fans have for this team to strengthen programs for at-risk children in our community. Proceeds from our events will benefit our Red Sox Scholars and RBI Youth Baseball & Softball cornerstone programs:

The Red Sox Scholars presented by BIDMC is a college scholarship and enrichment program managed by the Red Sox Foundation. With the selection of the newest class in May of 2016, the Red Sox Foundation has opened the doors of opportunity to 262 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, redeemable upon enrollment in an accredited college or university and successful completion of the program. In addition to the scholarship funds, becoming a Red Sox Scholar offers students the unique opportunity to participate in a variety of service projects, enrichment activities, and career exploration field trips throughout middle and high school.

The goal of Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities (RBI) is to increase participation in baseball and softball, encourage school attendance and achievement, develop self-esteem and life skills, instill values of teamwork, tolerance, and respect for others and teach safe and healthy choices to at-risk youth. Organized by the Red Sox Foundation, the RBI program serves 700 inner-city boys and girls, aged 9-18, from Brighton, Dorchester, Hyde Park, Jamaica Plain, Mattapan, Mission Hill, the North and South Ends, Roslindale, Roxbury, South Boston, and West Roxbury. In addition to the sport itself, the Red Sox Foundation program underscores the importance of good decision-making. We seek to ensure that every boy or girl participating in the program will have a stronger sense of themselves and their future potential.
