I am running the Boston Marathon (with a number!) on April 16th. I am running to raise funds for Pine Street Inn, New England’s leading resource for homeless and formerly homeless individuals.
I have committed to raising $3,000 in donations, and I need your help.
So far, I have raised $675 toward my goal.
This means I am 20% of the way to my goal.
I am counting on regular readers of this blog to step up and make donations. This site is visited by over 800 people on a daily basis. I feel as though I provide a valuable service. Although the site exists in order to bring me business, it goes far beyond that, I believe.
Pine Street Inn’s address is:
Pine Street Inn
444 Harrison Ave
Boston, MA 02118
If you are sending a check, write it out to Pine Street Inn, and be sure to write my name and “Boston Marathon” in the memo section.
Any donation is appreciated.
If you donate $100, I will dedicate a mile of the run just for you and make note of it on this blog (unless you prefer to be anonymous).
Thank you for helping out this great cause.
*** ADDED: Marathon veterans probably already know this, but I just read it for the first time, courtesy of Wikipedia:
When the idea of a modern Olympics became a reality, there was a use for a great popularizing event, recalling the ancient glory of Greece.
The idea of organizing the race came from Michel BrÃ©al, who wanted to put the event on the program of the first modern Olympic Games in 1896 in Athens. This idea was heavily supported by Pierre de Coubertin, the founder of the modern Olympics, as well as the Greeks.
The Greeks staged a selection race for the Olympic marathon, and this first marathon was won by Charilaos Vasilakos in 3 hours and 18 minutes.
Spiridon “Spiros” Louis, a Greek water-carrier, finished fifth in this race but won at the Olympics in 2 hours, 58 minutes and 50 seconds, despite stopping on the way for a glass of wine from his uncle waiting near the village of Chalandri.
Dude, I’m totally doing that.
