One Run for Boston

One Run for Boston

In 10 days, runners will begin a journey from Santa Monica, California that will cross the country and end at the finish line of the Boston Marathon, just under a month later. The One Run for Boston is an amazing non-stop running relay that is raising funds for the One Fund, which supports the victims and families of those affected by the Boston Marathon bombing last year.

I am thrilled to be a part of this amazing run. On Sunday, April 13th, I’ll join 100+ runners in Stage 335, starting in Waltham, MA and ending in Harvard Stadium. Together, we will run 6.5 miles along the Charles River, one of my absolute favorite paths, until we hand off the baton to the 336th and final group of runners.

Not only does this 6.5 run help me to support an amazing cause, but it kind of reflects my own personal journey here in New England. I came to Massachusetts to attend Brandeis University in Waltham in 2004, and 10 years later, I have an amazing job at Harvard University. On the day of the Boston Marathon last year, I was at work, watching it from my desk. When the news began to pour in about the bombing and we were allowed to head home early, I walked along Mt. Auburn Street, which briefly follows the Charles River, back home towards Watertown.

I am trying to raise $250 for the One Run for Boston and The One Fund, and I am almost there at $195. If you can, please consider supporting my journey and giving to this amazing cause!
