Hi! My name is Katrina Ladd and I am so excited for the opportunity to run the 2020 Boston Marathon on behalf of the Town of Ashland and the BAA Grant Fund. My husband and I moved to Ashland in 2017 and in May 2019 we had our daughter. We are avid runners and endurance athletes competing in countless half marathons, marathons, and triathlons; so being able to participate in the historic Boston marathon representing our local community is awesome! For work I am the Health & Wellness Director for the MetroWest YMCA...as many others in town, I too can't wait for the Regional YMCA in Ashland. As a runner of the marathon for the Town of Ashland I will be raising money for the BAA Grant Fund and was super excited to see all the organizations that have been able to take advantage of this resource. Because of my profession, I was excited to see healthy eating and physical activity/ fitness projects supported. I hope you will consider donating so Ashland, the home of the ORIGINAL Boston Marathon start line (1897), can continue to support the community.
