“Running the Boston Marathon for Horizons for Homeless Children is a truly unparalleled experience. The team at Horizons was supportive every step of the way, whether it was sending along training tips, fundraising pointers, or just a quick check-in. More than that, the emotional connection to the children and the Horizons program makes crossing the finish line for this amazing organization all the more special.”

– Meghan O’Brien (Previous Runner for Horizons for Homeless Children)
