Hello, everyone! My name is Chris Boulanger, and I'm thrilled to be running in the 2024 Boston Marathon on behalf of the town of Ashland. I'm reaching out to you for your support in helping me raise $3,000 which will help fund various improvements in town.
My connection to Ashland runs deep; my wife, Cheri, and I have been proud residents of this town for two decades. It's where we've built our home, our family, and our community. We are parents to two wonderful daughters: Brooke, who is currently a sophomore at Fairfield University, pursuing her dream of becoming a nurse, and Olivia, a senior at Ashland High School, set to graduate in May. Ashland has been the backdrop for so many moments in our lives, and we couldn't be more grateful for the sense of belonging it has given us.
In 2012, I had the privilege of participating in the Boston Marathon, an experience I'll never forget. That year, we faced record-breaking heat, and despite finishing, I've always wanted a "do over." The 2024 Boston Marathon presents a unique opportunity for me to take on this iconic race once again. It's a chance to fulfill a dream, conquer the course, and create new memories in the heart of our beautiful city.
As my wife, Cheri, and I approach our 50th birthdays in 2024, we see this marathon as a significant milestone. It's not just about completing 26.2 miles; it's about embracing the challenge, pushing our limits, and celebrating a half-century of life with purpose and determination. We are excited to take on this journey together and hope you'll join us in supporting this endeavor.
Your generosity will not only help me achieve my fundraising goal but also contribute to the betterment of Ashland and its community. Every donation, no matter the size, brings us one step closer to making a positive impact on the place we call home.
Thank you for considering a donation to my Boston Marathon fundraising campaign. Together, we can make a difference and show our love and dedication to the wonderful town of Ashland. Let's run towards a brighter future for our community!
