Hey Everyone, hope all of you are doing well. As you know, I often like to spread the word, not only about things happening in business school but also about social enterprises that are changing the world. Sometimes world reknowned organizations that you’ve all heard about but other times about up and coming organizations that are having a big impact on their local community. Well, one of those local organizations in Boston is The Capeshore Foundation and my JD-MBA classmate Jon Wakelin is one of the Directors. As such, I thought I’d use my site to spread the word about the upcoming event.
Cape Shore Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was founded in 2007 by a group of friends from Maine. Because they feel fortunate to have grown up in that environment, they wanted to use this nonprofit to help future generations have the same opportunity. Well, one way they raise money is by having a 5k race every August in Boston. This year, that race is being held on Saturday, August 20, 2011 @ 9:00 AM in Artesani Park (1234 Soldiers Field Road Brighton, MA), and I highly recommend that any readers in New England consider attending.

Friends and Supporters-
If you’re receiving this e-mail, you have supported CSF in the past, whether it be through our Annual 5-K or one of our community cleanup events. We truly thank you for your support, as you have helped us raise nearly $10,000 for local land trusts. With your help we hope to increase our annual giving, and this year we have selected the Androscoggin Land Trust as the recipient of race proceeds.
