I am running in the 2017 Boston marathon on behalf of the Lingzi Foundation on Monday, April 17th. I am hoping to raise $5,000 for the foundation. Please read more about me below and if you would like to contribute toward my run for the Lingzi foundation, click on the donate button below:
Lingzi and I were both graduate students at the Boston University and we took a few classes together. It seems like only yesterday and I would never forget the moment we were still talking about going and cheering the runners the week right before Patriots day 2013. This year, I will be finishing up my graduate studies at Boston University in the Math & Stat department. Running again before graduating in the city where we met and became friends, and where we studied together, will be the best memory.
The tragedy in the 2013 Boston Marathon took Lingzi away from our community. The Lingzi Foundation aims not only to memorialize her, but also provide educational opportunities for future students like her. People from different countries with different backgrounds became closer than ever before in our community.
I am incredibly honored to be part of the Lingzi team again and I sincerely hope you can join and support us in remembering Lingzi – a brave young woman who we will never forget.
