TEAM-FCVN: Running the 2009 Boston Marathon
Team FCVN will be running in the 2009 Boston Marathon on April 20, 2009. As you know, there are many reasons why participants choose to endure the physical and emotional challenge of the Boston Marathon. Some run to win; most run to finish; a few, use the opportunity to give. Members of Team FCVN 2009 are the chosen few. Team members have chosen to share their dream of completing a Boston Marathon with orphaned children in Vietnam. Help us, help them reach their goal, by pledging, either by check or online. (be sure to include the team member’s name when pledging).

Alessandra DeMarchis BIO
My name is Alessandra DeMarchis and I am a Junior year Biology major at Williams College. I am originally from Burlington, Vermont but currently live in Park City, Utah where I am able to enjoy skiing, climbing, mountain biking, and of course running. Up until this year I was a varsity Cross Country Skier for the Williams College Ski Team. After joining the Williams Outing Club last spring, I decided to concentrate my time on climbing and hiking. I ran the Burlington marathon two summers ago and it was one of the most reward experiences of my life. I am looking forward to supporting the FCVN and running the Boston Marathon this April.
