Sharmita Bhattacharjee

I am running my first marathon next April. I am running my first Boston Marathon next April. The gruelling 26.2 miles that I look forward to running is even more meaningful because to be even chosen to participate in the run is a honor.

Hello, I am Sharmita and  I have called Ashland, Massachusetts my home for the past 10 years. I have become a wife, a mother to three very interesting tiny humans in the very city of Ashland.  So what better cause than to run for the city that has given me so much.

I am so excited to be running the 128th  Boston Marathon for the town of Ashland to raise funds for the Boston Athletic Association grant. This grant promotes the quality of life for our residents and provide help where needed.


I am asking for your support to help me reach my $3,000 fundraising goal. Your donations will go directly to our Ashland nonprofits Ashland Preschool, the Ashland Emergency Fund, and the Ashland Clockers Club, among others.

Caulpon (8), Oronno (6) and Kahon (4) are all loyal  clockers, who have been cheering on marathoners on the side lines each year. So may be next year you will see some extra big smiles and extra big signs, as they cheer on their mama.
