Each year the Club takes kids to Disneyland who would never have gone, free of charge. That's why it's worth supporting

Please support my efforts to raise funds for the great programs at Boys & Girls Clubs of Dorchester!

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Dorchester's 2013 Marathon Team. Your donations will support more than 200 programs for 4,000 youth at the three Clubhouses in Dorchester.

Short Story: The Club changed my life and I am the person you know today because of it. It's a really great cause and you should donate as much as you can to help 4,000 youth who are there today.

Long Story:

I speak from first hand experience as I was one of those kids. I went to the Club from middle school and all throughout high school. The Club helped to shape who I am today and I am extremely grateful for all that they do every day. I get choked up every time I think of how grateful I am to the Club for giving me a place to grow up in a community that brings everyone together and is super supportive.

I only have the best things to say about the Club. For $5 a year (yes, only $5!) any kid can attend the Club and take advantage of so many resources it makes my head spin. When I was there I got to travel the country on college tours and conferences, go to Disney Land, and take part in a volunteer organization called Keystone. All of this for $5!

For the sake of full discloser, I am now on the Club's Board of Advisors so yes, I have an interest in raising as much money for the Club as possible. But seeing the organization from a new angle has made me respect it even more. It is extremely well run and it's staff is there for decades because they are making a change. Like any nonprofit the economy has hit it as well, but they are doing a terrific job and deserve our support.

So once again, please give as much as you can to this great organization that has changed my life.

I appreciate your support!
