Chris Young's Marathon Page

Thanks for checking out my fundraising page. 
I am lucky enough to have been chosen for the 2013 Charlestown Boys and Girls Club Marathon Team. The Charlestown Boys and Girls Club is given only 15 bibs and in return they are asking for a minimum of $2,500 donation. The money that is raised will go toward making the Charlestown Club a better place by upgrading the computer lab, purchasing supplies for the education and art programs, buying new equipment for the games room, new furnishings for the club, and many other uses that will continue to make the Boys and Girls Club a great place for the communities youth. 
The Boys and Girls Club has been a safe haven for Charlestown's youth since 1893. Over the last 119 years thousands of boys and girls have found a place that both supports them and challenges them to discover their talents and reach their full potential. 
This is the 6th year that the Club has fielded a Marathon team and I am very proud to be a part of it. Over the last two year the Boys and Girls Club has become very special to me as I have tutored youth at the Blue Hill Club and gone with the Blue Hill youth to rebuild a house in Springfield. Most recently I helped to renovate the teen center in the Waltham Boys and Girls Club. The youth that I have met through the Boys and Girls Club are truly inspirational and I am honored that they are letting me run the marathon for them. The minimum donation to be on the team is $2,500 but as most of you know I have never been one to settle for what is expected. I honestly think that with the help of all of my friends and family WE can raise at least $4,000....so if you have read all of this then the hard part is over, whatever donation you can make greatly appreciated and is one step closer to the finish line. I will be tracking my progress on facebook and logging my workouts so you can follow my progress and help motivate me! Thank you so much for your donation and wish me luck!
