Missy's Boston Marathon Relief Fund

$2,228 of $2,000 goal

Raised by 52 people in 74 months
Starting on Friday April 19th 2013 and ending on Tuesday April 30th 2013, I, Danielle Marquis (some may know me as Missy) plan to raise money for the victims in the Boston Marathon. Starting on Friday the 19th, to kick off this 11-day journey my dad will be running the first 15 miles to start our fundraiser. For the rest of the week, my dad and I will be running as much as we can each day and asking for donations per mile. During this period, I was hoping my track team, Newbury Park Track Club (youth and intermediate girls) could run with us at least one day for our practice just to get more people involved. On Sunday the 28th my dad will be running 26.2 miles (the same amount as a marathon) from Newbury Park to Zuma Beach to show his support because he is also a marathoner. And throughout any of these 26 miles, anyone is welcome to join or throughout this whole event, just please let us know beforehand. Then either on Monday or Tuesday (the 29th or 30th), I was hoping to get the whole Newbury Park Track Club to run to join me on this journey to reach my goal.

Hopefully by the end of this journey my goal is that, we could run about 60-70 miles and to raise about $2000 (All proceeds go to The One Fund Boston). I just want those victims to know there really are people who care and who really want to help. We all know this was no accident, this was indeed an act of hatred, and all I'm trying to help kill the hatred in this world by showing this support. Thank you!

Sorry I haven't posted in awhile everyone, but I just wanted to let you all know that we have raised exactly $2500! AMAZING!The fundraiser is over now I'm just waiting for the website to allow me to withdraw the money, and then I will probably take it down And as a reminder, my father and I ran about 129 miles total in just 12 days! Thank you so much to everyone for the support through this fundraiser. Thank you so much to all!

Sorry everyone, I forgot to tell you how much I ran yesterday. So I ran about 5 miles, did 2.5 of them with my dad at 6 in the morning and did another 2.5 after school! So I ran 5 miles and my dad did 2.5 miles. And I will keep this page up for a few more days for any last minute donations. Thank you again to everyone for everything, I couldn't have done it without all of you!

I just want to say THANK YOU to everyone that has helped me through this amazing journey, whether you ran with us or donated, I am just so glad I decided to do this! So in all I ran about 54 miles since Friday the 19th while my dad did about 75 miles since Friday the 19th. in total that is 129 miles! Unbelievable, not only the miles we've done but the amazing and generous donations we've received, but don't worry this money will for sure go to those in need from the Boston Marathon! I am so blessed to have people willing to support me in small fundraisers like these and I am amazingly shocked by our results so far, but the night isn't over yet! Thank you so much again everyone for everything, I don't even have words for how thankful I am right now... :) I'll keep posting for maybe a few more days, and hopefully soon I can start a year round fundraiser, now let's take a break from running ;) Thanks!

Good morning everyone! We have had a fantastic week and half or so, but today is the final day, let's make it great! We have passed our original goal, which is amazing, but let's make today extraordinary! Hope everyone has an amazing day, and remember today is the last day for donations! Also, I've already ran about 2.5 miles today with my dad, and I'm hoping to get another 2.5 in later though too :)
