Jack Nelson’s Marathon Page

$473 of $8,000 raised


At the heart of the Boston College mission is the concept of “magis,” meaning more. As a student-athlete at BC, I was taught to be a man for others and to leave the world a better place than I found it. Few embody those ethos quite like Pete Frates. Moreover, Pete personifies the Birdball core values of character, toughness, and class, virtues that I try to live by everyday. While Team Frate Train has raised millions of dollars for ALS research, there is more to be done. After watching the marathon for four years at Mile 21, I thought it was time for me to get in the action. I knew it was time for me to do more. I’m honored to be able to continue Pete’s mission of bringing awareness to ALS, and it means all the more that I get to do it in Boston’s most famous race. My fundraising goal is $8,000, a number that I hope we will blow out of the water. Please donate what you can. Thank you.
