I am running the 2011 Boston Marathon for Bottom Line, a non-profit dedicated to helping disadvantaged students go far in life.

Bottom Line began as a small operation supporting 25 high school seniors from Boston. In a time when few urban students were pursuing higher education and 1 in 7 low-income students who began attending college would finish, Bottom Line's founder Dave Borgal helped all 25 students get accepted to college and 80% graduate in six years or less. Since then, Bottom Line has maintained a high level of success.

Today, Bottom Line functions as an exemplary college retention model and a regional support network for low-income and first-generation urban students. From MCLA to Holy Cross and UMass Dartmouth to Bentley, thousands of Bottom Line students are earning their degrees.
