Eric: a monthly donor turned marathoner

Meet Eric Emmons!

We are so grateful to our team of seven runners who had committed to run the Boston Marathon this year to benefit Pine Street Inn. The marathon is now virtual due to the global pandemic, and Eric is going to run a marathon distance in September 2020 during the BAA's 'marathon week' on behalf of #teampinestreet.

Eric expands his involvement as part of #teampinestreet

Eric has been a monthly donor - an Innkeeper - for about two years now. This year, he decided to get further involved with Pine Street.

Eric commented, "fellow runner David Krakauer and I have sons at the same school. We were talking about our shared support of Pine Street's mission. He had already committed to running the Boston Marathon for Pine Street, and mentioned it as a possible way to get further involved."

With the marathon coming up in less than six week, "training is going well," Eric states. "My long runs are up to 14 miles each, and I'm about to start running the Commonwealth Avenue carriage road itself."

Good luck, Eric!

Eric plans to run a marathon distance in September 2020 during the BAA's 'marathon week' on behalf of #teampinestreet. We're looking forward to cheering you on the whole way. Go Eric, go!
