Dear friends and family,
On November 4, 2018 I will be running the New York City Marathon on the Boston Children’s hospital team, Miles for Miracles, in honor of Marissa Ramos. Marissa was a former lifelong patient of Boston Children’s hospital and my best friend since kindergarten. She was taken from us too soon at the age of 17 on May 27, 2014. I am doing this run for the hospital that worked so hard during Marissa’s life as a way to continue honoring Marissa as we all miss her dearly.
My fundraising goal for the hospital is $3,297. I am required to raise at least $3,000, and I added on the personal goal of an extra $297 because Marissa was born on the 29th, in the year of ’97, and her soccer number growing up was also #7.
This is something I have wanted to do for a little while now, and I am excited to achieve this goal while helping a great cause and honoring my best friend. Please help me reach my fundraising goal so I can run the NYC Marathon for Marissa.
I am excited to work towards this new goal, and have Marissa with me the whole way.
See you in November, New York!!
With love and appreciation, Kelly Barros
