News from... United South End Settlements
Jana Eggers and Steve Holt
Congratulations, Team USES
Yesterday, two amazing individuals, Jana Eggers and Steve Holt, ran 26.2 miles for United South End Settlements in the 2017 Boston Marathon. Together, they have raised $25,583 for USES.
As Jana put it, "Running Boston for my home team, United South EndSettlements, made every step in training and during the race uplifting for me and the 30% of people in the South End living below the poverty line. Thank you to the South End and my friends for the incredible support for this amazing organization."
