Our 2012 Boston Marathon Team Beats the Heat!
We were honored to have six dedicated supporters fundraising for our mission and running in CYCLE Kids bibs in the 2012 Boston Marathon! Their example both supports and inspires our mission, and their passion will help make positive and lifelong changes in the health of our children -- everywhere!
More than half of our team were CYCLE Kids Boston Marathon veterans, back for their second run: we’re grateful to Sue McDowell, Scott Freed, and David Nierenberg who once again did an exemplary job fundraising and advocating for our mission. We’re proud to say that our new runners, Steve Gibson, Bill Daly, and Charles Slick, aspire to return next year. Even in the incredible 90-degree heat, both Charles and Dave finished in less than 3 hours!
This team displayed a particular unity that speaks to how dedicated and unique the CYCLE Kids community is. All of our runners were drawn to the CYCLE Kids mission and share our values; each strives to enable kids to live healthier lives through their own projects. Further inspired by our program, three are currently working to bring CYCLE Kids to their hometown, Atlanta, Georgia!
