I am proud and humbled to be running in my very first marathon on April 17, 2017, and it’s the Boston Marathon!! I do love to run but I have never run anything more than 14 miles so as a wife and mom of three young boys with a full time job I have made the commitment in my training and in my heart to give my absolute BEST on Marathon Monday! This is my ultimate dream come true and the opportunity of a lifetime.
I am running to raise money for the Claddagh Fund which is a charitable foundation of the Dropkick Murphy’s. Founded in 2009 the members of the band realized that they can harness the passion of their friends, fans and family of the band, to give back to the community that had been so generous to them. The mission of the Claddagh Fund is to raise funds and awareness for the most underfunded organizations in our communities, focusing on children and veteran’s organizations and alcohol and substance recovery programs.
My brother is a Dropkick Murphy’s band member and through them I learned of the Claddagh Fund and how influential this organization is. This is our chance to give back and support this cause. Each donation will help over two dozen charities and you can learn more about these at www.CladdaghFund.org
I hope that you’ll join me in this incredible adventure and support me in my fundraising efforts. Your donation will make a difference! Many thanks for your interest and support! Also please don’t forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too! I promise to give you smiles during all 26.2 miles of this Iconic Race!
