Welcome to Meghan Gaucher's Page
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!
I will be running in the Oldfields Half Marathon on April 1, 2017 with my sister, Emily! unning the Boston Marathon has been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember and I can't imagine a better way to make that dream a reality than by raising money for and representing BoMF in the process!
I will be raising money to support Back on My Feet: an organization that combats homelessness through the power of running, community support, essential employment, and housing resources. They have a branch in my home city of Boston.
I want to run my second half marathon for a cause that is close to my heart and has the potential to bring significant changes to our local communities, particularly to those that are suffering and may not have four walls and a roof to call home. Back on My Feet gives a pair of shoes and a cause to the homeless across the country: to run. By showing up every morning bright and early ready to run, the participants in the program are given the opportunity to advance their lives by developing self esteem. The support system and structure the program offers can benefit local employment and houses facilities as well as those in our community that need it most.
As a runner, nothing is more empowering than pounding the pavement before the the sun is up.
I appreciate your support and hope you consider donating to the cause!
