Marathon 2014 Masthead

David Volk
Blissfield, Michigan

David had back surgery in January 2013 and was told he probably would not be able to run anymore. He's now training for his first Boston Marathon®.

As a lifelong student of science and history I am very excited to participate in the 2014 Boston Marathon! Boston is full of incredible American history, and there are so many great things to learn! One of the city's gems is the New England Aquarium.

I have spent the last 13 years in education, and the opportunity to run Boston and raise money for the New England Aquarium is something I am honored to do.  

What drew me to the Aquarium was its community outreach programs. As an educator I know firsthand the value of having partners in the community who are willing and able to help children and adults connect what they are learning in school with what is happening in the world. The New England Aquarium does this and so much more!  

Schools cannot do it alone; we need help from the community, and you can help continue one of those great programs that get kids interested in learning. Please help by donating to the New England Aquarium so they can continue to provide a variety of educational experiences to kids of all ages!  

Thank you for your support, I know I will make you all proud!
