After a 5 year hiatus from the Boston Marathon, I have decided to take on the challenge in 2013. As part of giving back, I am raising money for The Jumpstart Organization.

Jumpstart’s mission is to ensure that every child in America enters school prepared to succeed. Every year, Jumpstart recruits and trains thousands of college students and community volunteers, called Corps members, to work with preschool children in low-income neighborhoods. Throughout the school year, Corps members dedicate several hours each week with their partner children to implement Jumpstart’s proven curriculum and develop the language, literacy, and social skills these children need to succeed in school and in life. This year, Jumpstart Boston’s Corps members will give 140,000 hours of service to change the educational lives of 1,000 children in nearly 50 preschools. Learn more at As well as raising money for Jumpstart, I am one of the Marathon Coalition coaches. The Marathon Coalition is a group of 13 BAA and John Hancock sponsored charities (comprised of over 150 runners) that train together for the Boston Marathon. We unite to support each other in an effort to expand the profile of youth-focused charities in the Boston area throughout the marathon season.
