I am a proud member of the 2020 NE Patriots Foundation 2020 Boston Marathon Team. My running and fundraising is creating opportunities that benefit charities all across New England by made possible by you and your financial kindness. You will make a huge difference by being part of my team too!
Since their inception a decade ago, the New England Patriots Foundation’s Boston Marathon teams have raised more than $3 Million to support children and families throughout the region. All of the funds raised by this year’s team will once again support the Myra Kraft Community MVP Awards program, which honors Myra’s livelong commitment to volunteering by recognizing outstanding community volunteers from all across New England and awarding grants to their respective nonprofit organizations.
This year’s Community MVP Awards will recognize 26 volunteers from across the New England region for their outstanding commitment to community service. The honorees will be invited to a special luncheon at Gillette Stadium. Each of the nonprofits for which the winners volunteer will receive a grant to support their programs. Last year’s recipients featured individuals from every New England state, ages 13 to 92, serving nonprofit organizations specializing in education, healthcare, homelessness, mentoring and military appreciation, to name a few.
Hundreds of runners applied to be a part of this year’s Patriots Boston Marathon team. When applying to the team, runners submitted information about their desire to run for the team, which included stories of being lifelong Patriots fans, triumph over personal difficulties and a desire to lead healthy lives. The Patriots Maraton Team picked 15 people to represent them this year and I am honored to have been chosen and look forward to many years of creating more fianncial opportunities for them.
Please help me help our communities and the fantastic programs the NE Patriots Foundation supports. There is something here for everyone.
