My name is Andrew Gillis and I am running the 2018 Boston Marathon for the Town of Ashland with my daughter Lily. We are both very happy to be representing the Town of Ashland for the 2018 Boston Marathon while fundraising for several key projects for the town. I am a past 2011 Town of Ashland Boston Marathon Team Member. However, this year’s marathon is especially important to me, as it is the first marathon that I will run with my daughter. We have planned for at least the last 10 years to run the Boston Marathon together when she turned 18 years old. Therefore, I am very grateful to the town of Ashland to have provided this opportunity to both my daughter and myself. While I have run road races through much of my life, I completed my first Boston Marathon in 2004, and I have completed a total of eight (8) Boston Marathons, all with charity fundraising teams. In addition, I have completed one (1) other marathon and many half marathons over the last 15 years. Both Lily and myself are well underway with our training, hoping to complete the 2018 Boston Marathon in a time of 3:45 while also meeting or exceeding our fundraising goals. Please help us to achieve this goal by supporting my fundraising page/link.
