Kiel Anderson is Running Boston
Please support our Boston Marathon runner, Kiel Anderson, who is dedicating her run to raising critical funds for The Angel Fund.

"Since I've committed to running the 2024 Boston Marathon, I have been asked many times why I've made this decision.At first, to friends and family, I usually make a joke that I love attention, and what better way to get everyone's attention than to run the Boston Marathon on my birthday?
But in all seriousness, the Boston Marathon has always been on my bucket list. After running the BAA Half Marathon a handful of times, I’ve always declared that if I am going to run the full thing, it has to be in Boston.This is why I am honored to be running for the Angel Fund. As I train and embark on this journey, I dedicate myself to honoring those with ALS and raising money for the cause. Taking on this challenge is a huge feat. Being able to push myself physically and mentally is hard, but being able to do it while raising money for an amazing foundation is what I define as strength.As I train, I am reminded that the pain I experience is temporary, but for those living with ALS, it's a lifelong challenge. Running for this cause is not just about conquering a marathon; it's about standing in solidarity with those facing a daily battle against ALS, and I'm honored to contribute to the fight for a brighter future."
