Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the continued support of the Boselli Foundation’s after-school and summer programs for at-risk children here in Jacksonville through your participation in special events, fundraisers and activities at our youth life learning centers. You are the reason our children are experiencing amazing successes, such as improved standardized test scores, better grades, improved school attendance and fewer behavior issues.
Unfortunately, in the special events world, things don’t always go as planned, and our Boselli Trail Run committee has made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s event. Our projected participation numbers do not meet our budgetary needs, and though we know the Trail Run would be a success in terms of the quality of the course and the run experience, fiscally, it just doesn’t work.
As you can imagine, it was a very difficult decision, and one that we took very seriously. Fiscal responsibility is of the utmost importance and we would never produce an event that was not in the best interest of our donors, our partners and most importantly, the precious children we serve year-round. The trust you place in the Boselli Foundation to be strong stewards of your contributions is something we hold in high regard, and we, nor our staff or Board of Directors will ever place that in jeopardy.
If you have registered for the Boselli Trail Run, refunds will be processed and checks mailed to you (at the address listed on your registration) by September 30. We are in the process of updating this event website and social media channels, as well as notifying all runners, volunteers, vendors and event partners.
If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to contact our development director Bonnie Upright via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you again for your support of our children’s programs, and we look forward to seeing you soon.
Tony and Angi Boselli
