HomeStart's 2019 Runners!
Shawn moved to the Boston area about 15 years ago after completing veterinary school at Virginia Tech and she has been working for the MSPCA Angell Animal Medical Center since that time. Although she initially took up running as an after-work social event with colleagues, she eventually began training for longer competitions "just for fun."Since meeting her husband, Zaven, she has run in 4 marathons and numerous half marathons. Shawn is excited and proud to be running the Boston Marathon in 2019 for HomeStart and hopes to help many people in the Boston area through her fundraising.
Rick has been on the Boston Real Estate scene since 1990 and is now a full-time broker with Keller Williams Realty as part of the R & L Home Team. He is no stranger to marathon running and fundraising - this will be his 9th time running the Boston Marathon as part of a charity team and also completed the 2003 Marine Corps marathon in Washington D.C.. His last marathon was about 10 years ago during a monsoon! Rick is passionate about homeownership and helping the homeless and is excited to be raising funds for HomeStart and running again.
HomeStart is proud to be an official Partner of John Hancock in the Marathon Non-Profit Program. The Non-Profit Program provides over 1000 Boston Marathon® bibs to select non-profit organizations throughout the community, which provides organizations with a significant fundraising opportunity. Last year, John Hancock Non-Profit Runners raised over $38.7M for their causes.
