“When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.” — Raoul Duke

To that end, I will run the 2011 Boston Marathon to raise money for Access, a fine Boston organization that helps students and families through the long march of financial aid forms and college applications. The commercially minded will be glad to know that last year, Access raised $61 for every $1 spent. That totaled $50 million for 4,000 students.

I am asking 100 people for $50 each. (This is prudent risk management. We all know that if you raise $5,000, you owe $5,000. This limits my future exposure to $50 from any individual, just in case.)

It’s 6:40 a.m. Our second team run is at 8 a.m. in Newton. Temperature is not 44 degrees as my old thermometer says.  Charles River is frozen over.  This week at Bunker Hill Community College, I had to find help for a fine student about to lose her housing.  The ACCESS cause is real.

In what may be the only Wick/Williams board alignment ever, Laurie Thomsen, Williams Trustee, is on the ACCESS board.

Thanks if you’ve read this far.

Noah, where are you?
