South Boston, Massachusetts
Amanda, known as Mandy to her friends and family, is a member of the New
England Aquarium’s Marketing Department, as well as a certified yoga instructor at Open
Doors Yoga Studios.
I am excited simply to have the opportunity to run the
Boston Marathon®, but I feel blessed to run it for an organization that means so
much to me. The New England Aquarium is passionate about protecting the ocean,
and I’ve come to wholly embrace its mission. By
running to support the Aquarium’s education programs, I can help spread that
love and encourage more kids to care about the ocean and all its inhabitants.
As an ocean-lover and staff member at the Aquarium, I can think of no other
organization I would rather support during my Boston Marathon run. When
I’m not on my yoga mat or running the streets of Boston, I love to laugh, have
fun and spend time with my friends and family.
The New England Aquarium is an official charity of the 118th Boston Marathon. Funds raised by our runners will support hands-on, interactive outreach programs that reach 45,000 children in diverse communities every year. Through your generosity, Aquarium educators will inspire young children to learn about and protect the world’s oceans.
