Event Details

 

Dear Friends,

 

Each year, the Boston Marathon generously provides numbers to organizations to assist with fundraising efforts. Team BMC is one such team and this year, I was chosen as part of their team. While running is not usually my thing, it too, is part of the challenge. I dont plan to break any records but, walk-run-crawl, I intend to finish! I have been fortunate to work with a particular group at Boston Medical Center for many years; the SPARK Center located in Mattapan. The mission of the center is to help Boston's highest-risk children to build brighter tomorrows. SPARK provides therapeutic, medically-specialized programs for children of all ages based on the philosophy that all children are resilient and able to take control of their futures. SPARK makes long-term investments in fragile childrenhelping them believe in themselves, makes healthy choices, cope with emotional problems, achieve in school and gain success as adults.

 

 

There are so many great causes but when it comes to children, need I say more? We must do for them what they cannot do for themselves. It is for that reason that I am proud to represent the SPARK Centers Dennis Fund for Team BMC. I am doing so in memory of some very special people: my dad Eddie, a hardworking Irish immigrant, who never forgot about helping others; my father-in-law John, a veteran and family man; and some special friends, Mary Reed, who recently lost her battle to cancer,  Paul Drew, an influential advocate for neighborhood access to health care; and Dennis Lucyiniak, a coordinator of SPARKs Special Education Program known as a gifted special needs educator who dedicated his life to nurturing and guiding fragile children and their families.  My life has been made better having known each of them!

 

 As part of the team, I have committed to raise $10,000 for this great cause! I, along with my co-host, David Brown (Former Boston Meteorologist) am pleased to announce the Red Carpet to the Finish Line event on, April 6, 2013 starting at 7 p.m. at Mercedes Benz of Westwood, located at 425 Providence Highway. The event will include the traditional red carpet, photos, fabulous lite fare, beverages, complimentary parking and entertainment. There are wonderful opportunities for sponsorship, to donate some prizes or giveaways, and of course, to purchase your tickets.

 

 I hope you will honor a healthy child by helping this program better the lives of these wonderful children. Please feel free to contact me with any questions at 617.922.8600. I appreciate your consideration and look forward to seeing you on the 6th of April!

 

 In good health,

Maureen

As I approach my 50th birthday, I am reminded of how blessed and lucky I have been; of all the wonderful things I have been able to accomplish! One of my proudest, however, has been my ability to rally people like you to help others who are less fortunate. That said, I have decided to again accept a fundraising challenge; joining thousands of others for the 117th running of the Boston Marathon. What better way to celebrate over the hill then over Bostons heartbreak hill?

So please join me on the "Red Carpet" and together we can cross the finish line and make a difference in the lives of children!
