Boston Marathon

This is my first year running the marathon and I am extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to represent the 26.2 Foundation and run the Boston Marathon. 

The 26.2 Foundations, dba Hopkinton Athletic Association, is a philanthropic non-profit 501 (c)3 organization with community roots in Hopkinton, MA and international reach. The organization makes investments in programs that promote education, fitness, and health. Their mission is to promote the sport of marathoning, as well as health, wellness and economic development initiatives through strategic investments in innovative, multi-general programs on local, regional, national and global levels. 

A few examples of the programs the 26.2 Foundation has granted funds to in the past include a multi- year commitment to the Hopkinton Special Olympics, the Hopkinton Council on Aging, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, the East Coast Jumbos ( a hockey program for youths with special needs), The Angel Fund (for ALS research), the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, the "Marathon Fitness Challenge," (an innovative fitness program for 2nd and 3rd grade students), Dreamfar High School Marathon Team ( an organization whose vision is to give at risk high school students the tools to succeed in school and beyond by training to run a marathon), various youth athletic and educational programs, and cultural arts programs. 

For more information about the 26.2 Foundation and the programs the organization has supported, please visit their website, or their Facebook page. 

I would greatly appreciate your support.

Thank you,
