Boston Marathon!
Posted Tuesday, May 25, 2021 05:33 PM

Dear Classmates,

Like many, I’m an average runner who has never been able to quality for the Boston Marathon in 38 years of running marathons! I have been invited to join the 16-member CRI Boston Marathon Team and will run the last marathon of my lifetime, the Boston Marathon on October 11th. Community Rowing, Inc.(CRI) gives youth and adults with physical and intellectual disabilities an opportunity to experience the profound physical and mental benefits of rowing. Would you consider supporting my required fundraising for this worthy organization by donating 50 cents a mile ($13) or one dollar a mile ($26)? If you can, click on this link to make a contribution:

Dear Sandi Paulick,

Thank you so much for your very generous donation to this very workwhile organization! I can't tell you how much it means to make my dream of running the Boston Marathon a reality with your help!

I appreciate your contribution!
