Boston Marathon - Path4Teens New England

\"There will be days when I don\'t know if I can run a marathon. There will be a lifetime knowing that I have.\" -Unknown

I feel very fortunate to be afforded the opportunity to run in the world's oldest, most idolized marathon for the second year in a row.  On April 16th, I will be toeing the line for the 116th running of the Boston Marathon as part of the Boston Police Runners\' Club. I feel even more fortunate to be running for a great cause - Path4Teens New England! 

Path4Teens provides today's tools for tomorrows leaders. Incorporating personal development and leadership development, with an emphasis on Community Service Learning Projects, Path4Teens helps students discover their core values. They learn about their gifts and talents and how they can use them to volunteer within their own communities. The most significant process is the creation of mission statements. This becomes the foundation upon which they develop a set of life skills and, aligned with their purpose and passion, promotes healthy decision-making and focuses them like a laser on their future. Aggregate data shows a 300% increase in the number of graduates and a 49%increase in API scores from students participating in the Path4Teens program.

In my fund raising efforts for this charity, I have organized a raffle.  The raffle will be held on Saturday, April 7th with all proceeds going to the Boston Police Runners Club.  Whether you make an on-line donation or purchase tickets  in person you will be entered in the drawing to win some exciting prizes.  Tickets are 3 chances for $10 or $5 for 1 chance. You can make checks payable to the Boston Police Runners\' Club and mail them to Michael Buckley, 65 East Road, Westminster, MA 01473. The Boston Police Runner's Club is a 501c3 non-profit organization (TAX ID NUMBER:  75-3240064).
