Thanks to the City of Newton and Newton Rotary, at 6:30AM on Saturday September 12th I will complete my journey back to health by running from Hopkinton to Boston as part of my entry into the 125th Boston Marathon virtual race. Here is my race day plan.
As part of this journey, we raised $7209 enabling us to fully fund $6000 in 2020 Newton Rotary Scholarships with some leftover for Covid-19 relief and a start on funding 2021 Scholarships.
On June 9th I ran my 6th marathon and qualified for the Boston Marathon by 16 seconds. I promptly had a heart attack at the finish line. Read Light at the End of the Tunnel for the story.
I’m so grateful for having the opportunity to get to know the people of Rotary Club of Newton and their work. Thank you to the City of Newton for the opportunity.
